In August 2006, the Jaipur Bus Rapid Transit Service was approved by the Indian government for implementation.[1] The responsibility for managing Jaipur BRTS has been given to JCSTL, a Special Purpose Vehicle formed by Jaipur Development Authority and Jaipur Nagar Nigam in a joint venture.[1] The BRTS is expected to cater to city's growing traffic for next 15–20 years. In Phase I, two corridors have been proposed.[1]

  • Sikar Road to Tonk Road – North-South Corridor
  • Ajmer Road to Delhi Road – East-West Corridor

A section of North-South Corridor from C-Zone Bypass near Harmada to Pani Pech became operational in July 2010.[1][2] The work on other section of North-South Corridor and East-West Corridor has commenced.[1]
