Electric Buses[edit]

NITI Aayog has proposed to operate electric low floor AC city buses on different routes in the city by 2020.[4]

Here are some route suggestions for electric city buses:-

  • Kanpur Central/Cantt Side-Rail Bazar-Cantonment Hospital/Mirpur Cantt-Times of India/MG Park-Noronha Crossing-LIC Building-Phool Bagh-Reserve Bank of India-Bada Chauraha-Naveen Market/Landmark-Parade-Lal Imli Mill-Chunniganj Bus Station-Palika Stadium-Emerald Garden-Company Bagh-Nawabganj Jama Masjid-Azad Nagar/Vishnupuri-Allen Forest Zoo-KDA Signature-Vikas Nagar Bus Depot

Kanpur Tourism AC Low floor[edit]

KCTSL along with UPSTDC has proposed to operate low floor tourist buses on this route with reverse route too:-

These buses will run at the frequency of one hour and will start running from 9:00 AM with last bus at 7:00 PM on both Up and Reverse routes.

Challenges[edit]

There are numerous challenges faced by Kanpur City Transport Services Limited in operating city buses in the city. One of the biggest challenge is the lack of passengers. People of the city have the perception that fare of buses are more than the auto rickshaws and tempo. KCTSL should acknowledge people about true fare of buses. There are also less number of AC City buses as to what is the requirement in the city. The main reason for this is because the routes selected by KCTSL are not up to the mark and it will never get adequate passengers in the city bus until it operates the city buses on correct routes.Apart from that there should be advertisements on AC Buses and solar panels on top to generate electricity for AC and digital presentation of routes which can generate income for KCTSL. Here are the most busy routes on which city buses should ply:-
