Frustrated with frequent traffic jams and poor traffic management, citizens are losing patience and are seen entering the sacrosanct BRTS corridor.
Kumar Manish's insight:

Car is not a small luxury but a lyxury which is enjoyed by few at the cost of many. The traffic management is big issue and so does the operation & maintainence of BRTS facilities in Ahmedabad. 

Insread of critising BRTS in Ahmedabad, the authirities need to pull their socks and improve the services. Parking needs to bne charged as soon as possible or the city will look like a parking lot.

Bouncers Guard BRTS Lane | Janmarg, the peoples' way | Scoop.it

The corridor for BRTS buses on the Raipur-Astodia stretch is nowadays guarded by well-built bouncers. This is one of the most notorious of the BRTS stretches of the city, as it gets breached frequently. Mixed traffic vehicles, including AMTS buses, sneak into the corridor quite often, particularly if a traffic jam takes place during peak hours.
