Share This Post

With a view to curbing traffic rush, a skybus service will be started in Aurangabad.
Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has signed the agreements between service provider Wapcos and Local Administration agency for preparing DPR for Skybus project to provide modern Public Transport System in Aurangabad.  Wapcos, which is a PSU of the Central Government, has tied up with Doppelmayr as its technological partner for the Aurangabad Project. Wapcos has signed agrrement with the cities in three states — Dharamsala, Shimla and Manali in Himachal Pradesh, Pauri and Rishikesh in Uttarkhand and Aurangabad in Maharasthra.

According to experts, Skybus can carry about 200 passengers. Compared to other hi-tech transport systems, the capital cost of constructing the skybus is said to be among the lowest. If compared to the heavy rail system, it involves minimum land acquisition requirement, higher average speed and faster implementation.
There are multiple choices from a six-seater skybus to a 236-seater double-decker skybus. They will be set up according to the demand of the city.

CityKatta’s View:
According to detailed survey conducted by NHAI,  the vehicle count on Jalna road is around 6,00,000 vehicles per day. Repeated traffic jams is a constant problem causing delay to anyone travelling from Jalna road. To address this issue we need a better Public transport system. With DMIC, Smart City Project coming, Aurangabad needs a better Public Transport System in the near future.
