AMTS bus schedules

AMTS bus schedules , routes and online booking

Ahmedabad Municipal Transport Service (AMTS) runs the public bus service in the city of Ahmedabad in India. At present, AMTS has 750 buses serving the city. In addition AMTS is also responsible for 50 BRTS buses, and 100 feeder buses. The responsibility of the administration of AMTS comes under the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation.


Ahmedabad is the seventh largest city in India with a population of over seven million. It is located in the State of Gujarat (in Western part of India). Recently Ahmedabad created a wave in the country by implementing a Bus Rapid Transit System in the city. The BRTS was implemented under the title “Jan-Marg” which literally means people’s way. The implementation of BRT-Janmarg has a favorable impact on the overall transportation of the city, however there are some challenges in maintaining the system efficiently.

BRT is a transportation model that promotes mobility of buses on the road by dedicating a special lane for the buses and giving them right of way. BRT model was first implemented in Curitiba, Brazil, beginning services in 1974. This model was later followed by several cities worldwide, to name a few: Bogota, Columbia; Istanbul, Turkey; Lima, Peru; Ahmedabad, India. This blog will discuss the implementation of Janmarg in Ahmedabad and its impact on the city’s transportation.
Janmarg is operated by Ahmedabad Janmarg ltd, a subsidiary of Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation. Before Janmarg, common modes of transportation preferred by people were public buses run by Ahmedabad Municipal Transport Services (AMTS), private cars, two wheelers or auto rickshaw (three tired motorized vehicle).  However with buses getting overcrowded and increasing petrol prices, transportation was getting unreliable and costlier than before. Janmarg began operating on the streets of Ahmedabad in October 2009. Presently Phase I has been completed. Phase II is under the process of completion and phase III is yet to begin. After completing all the phases Janmarg is expected to stretch over about 135 kilometers through the city. Presently Janmarg is covering nearly 45 kilometer stretch.
