Bus Rapid Transit System

Bus Rapid Transit System, also called BRTS in short, is a bus-based mass transit system. The system has specialized design, services and infrastructure to improve system quality and remove the typical causes of delay of bus transportation in Visakhapatnam.


On 13 January 2016, GVMC Commissioner Pravin Kumar said that the deadlock over work on the expansion of BRTS has been resolved. There were issues earlier with the boundary walls of the Navy and Railway buildings. In a field visit, Pravin Kumar has observed the ongoing expansion work at Thatichetlapalem Railway Station and Convent Junction.
