Kanpur City Transport Services Limited, or the Kanpur Metropolitan Bus Service (KMBS), is a committee which oversees bus service in the Kanpur metropolitan area. KMBS operates a fleet of 300 low-floor buses, with and without air conditioning,[1] which serve many parts of the metropolitan area.

History[edit]

The service, formerly known as Mahanagar Bus Seva in Hindi, began operating on 6 July 1922.[2] The city bus service began in 2004 with a fleet of 100 buses. The city buses were brought under the control of Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM), the Indian government's urban-modernisation scheme, in 2009.[1]
