    In Ahmedabad, a city with a population of more than 5.5 million, commuting options were limited. Commuters could either drive, take the municipal bus (which was over crowded) or auto rickshaws. An affordable public transport network that would enable people to reach their destinations in the shortest possible time, in the easiest possible manner, was required. The Ahmedabad bus rapid transport system (BRTS) is that system. Going by the name “Janmarg” or “the people’s way”, the BRTS began operation in October 2009, and has grown from 12 kilometres of route to 45 kilometres and growing. Passenger numbers have also grown, from 18,000 at the start to nearly 130,000 today.
