Public Transportation options in ahmedabad

Ahmedabad, as the largest city of Gujarat, was ranked third in Forbes's list of fastest growing cities of the decade in the year 2010. Today the city has been selected as one of the hundred Indian cities to be developed as one of the hundred smart cities under India’s Smart Cities Mission. When it comes to transport, Ahmedabad is one of the six operating divisions in the Western Railway zone, connecting city to towns in Gujarat and other major Indian cities. The mass-transit metro system, known as MEGA, being built for the cities of Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar, has been under creation since March 2015.

The North-South and East-West corridors are expected to complete by 2019. If you are stuck one of India’s interminable traffic jams in Ahmedabad, then you would be glad to find sleek new buses running at regular intervals down segregated lanes in the middle of the road, with regular stations that allow passengers to step on and off on either side of the bus. This system, also known as the Janmarg, also features dedicated lanes for pedestrians and bicycles. Thus, this has resulted in a noticeable reduction in congestion and pollution in the city as compared to 2001 when it was voted the most polluted city in India. Unlike most public transportation elsewhere in India, the success that the city has experienced in cutting the journey times has even attracted business persons out of their comfortable cars.
