Transport in Ahmednagar
Below is a complete breakdown and brief information on all the transportation services available in Ahmednagar city.
AMT Bus Services in AhmednagarAMT bus service is today by far the most affordable local public transportation in entire Ahmednagar city. This bus service is actually ppp (public private partnership) project between Ahmednagar Municipal Corporation and Prasanna Purple Pvt Ltd. As of today it runs 23 buses on daily basis covering 6 routes in Ahmednagar city and carrying over 20,000 passengers to different parts of the city. It is definitely a very modest bus service as compared to Mumbai’s BEST and Delhi’s DTC bus service. But, for upcoming city like Ahmednagar, which few years back had no local bus service, even this modest bus service is much needed relief for local people.
The AMT bus is completely draped in white color with name ‘Purple’ written on it. However, the interior of the bus and the facilities inside it are pretty much the same that one gets in BEST or DTC bus service.
