Thanks...

Not Exactly...It would not be enclosed as shown here...The passage would be open like in Ahmedabad BRTS Bus Stop..

I could not take all the pics of the Bus Stop. As the attendant over there stopped me to take the pics...

As per the attendant, the design of the Laxminarayan Bus Stop is complete and finalized. So, all the bus stop will be designed accordingly only.

He also told me that it is next to impossible to complete the Corridor 1 of Phase 1 even if the work goes on for 24x7. But lets hope for the best

Does'nt look like it. Anyway A/C is not needed, the design of the station is very open and airy, it will allow air circulation...

Very classy signs and overall look and feel of the Surat BRTS bus stations is good, asthetically appealing, and real attention seems to be have been given to asthetics. The photos make any lover of public transport systems lick his lips with satisfaction and joy. Good job, good job. Looking forward to modern low-floor CNG powered AC buses a la Delhi moving down the BRTS routes in Surat.

BRTS to roll out in city by Navratri

Quote:
SURAT: This could well be the Diwali gift for Surtis.

After an inordinate delay, the much-awaited Bus Rapid Transit System (BRTS) is finally ready to roll out in the city. The first bus will ply by Navratri on the 10-km stretch from Udhna Darwaja to Unn on Udhna-Navsari road.

Ruling BJP in Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) is keen to start this route before elections are announced.

"The dedicated BRTS track is ready for use and service roads under construction along with bus stops," said BS Shah, additional city engineer in-charge of the project.

SMC has already invited bids from private operators to run the buses. "We have received five bids for operating buses on this route and the price bids will be opened very soon," he added. Two bidders are local firms whereas one is from Mumbai and two are from Ahmedabad.

Cube Construction once again wants to extend deadline

BRTS to miss deadline again
SURAT: The first phase of Bus Rapid Transport System (BRTS) in the city is in for a further delay. Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) is in a fix ever since it opened the tender bids for the operation of buses on Udhna-Darwaja to Unn Road segment of the phase-1. The lowest bidder is operating Redline bus services in the city against which there are lots of complaints. SMC is not keen to award the contract to someone whose operations have so far been unsatisfactory. The first phase for 30 km is already delayed by over 12 months.

"There is lot to be desired from the present state of public transport in the city. We want to give an efficient and comfortable transport system to the people of Surat," municipal commissioner Manoj Das said.

Tender scrutiny committee headed by municipal commissioner will discuss the issue before sending the proposal to the standing committee for final approval. A decision on it was expected on Friday, but has been postponed.

"How can an operator run air-conditioned buses on rates that are even lower than non-AC buses in Ahmedabad?" asked a senior leader of BJP, the party which controls the municipal corporation.

At present, the rate for non-AC buses in Ahmedabad is Rs 43 per km whereas the lowest bidder Barmecha and Sons in Surat has filled in Rs 41.49 per km as its rate for operating AC buses.

"We have received a number of complaints against our city bus operator. The buses are in a deplorable condition. Around 120 buses are shown as running but actually on Surat roads there are only 70," said an official from SMC's traffic cell.

SMC plans to run 40 AC buses in the BRTS' first phase. It wanted to begin the operations before the elections that are scheduled to be held by December 2012. However, now this looks a distant possibility.

Mahendra Oswal, one of the partners of Barmecha and Sons that runs the Redline bus services, said, "There is no parameter to guage the quality of services. We run the local bus services at a loss of Rs 70,000 per day. When we were awarded the contract six years ago, the gas rate was Rs 21 per litre now it is Rs 51."

Pls read it carefully, all the names of the cities I've stated are those whose DPR has been prepared by DMRC...perhaps Hyd metro has not involved DMRC.
