New Tata Motors buses flagged off in Amritsar by Deputy Chief Minister Shri. Sukhbir Singh Badal
Honorable Deputy Chief Minister of Punjab, Shri Sukhbir Singh Badal flagged off new Tata Motors Automatic Transmission buses, for the newly constructed Bus Rapid Transit System (BRTS) in Amritsar.
These fully air-conditioned automatic transmission buses are comfortable for both the driver and passengers, and are equipped with BRTS doors, for ease of passenger movement in and out of the bus, with a capacity to handle a total of 80-100 passengers at any given time.
Part of a larger order of 93 buses, the new buses are equipped with well proven new-generation Tata Cummins ISBe engines, air suspension and multiplex wiring meeting UBS II (Urban Bus specification) as specified by the Government of India. These buses also have higher acceleration of 0.8 m/sec2, cutting down on travel time, thus making bus travel faster. The shorter wheel base improves the turning radius in the city.
On-Bus ITS (Intelligent Transport System) has Public information system, Automatic vehicle location system, security network system, vehicle health monitoring and diagnostics. GPRS enabled connectivity permits the bus to be connected with the Control room for Live monitoring.
We have similar BRTS automatic transmission, air conditioned buses in Ahmedabad and Raipur
