Public Transport System in Surat City

public transport in surat city

The public transport system in Surat is well organized. However, we don’t have local trains like Mumbai or Metro like New Delhi. But we have cabs, auto, BRTS, and city bus services.

What kind of rides does Surtis prefer on a daily basis?

To help you understand we have enlisted some of them here. Have a look.

1. Local Bus Network

For local transportation, Surat is served by a road transport service called Surat City Bus. The city bus is integrated on a PPP basis. It is the Public-Private Partnership model. It is operated by a local company under the control of the Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC).

2. Cabs

Hired cabs and shared auto rickshaws are important modes of transportation. It is because the city is big and the frequency of buses is short. Most of the Surtis prefers shared auto-rickshaw as it is readily available everywhere.

Additionally, cab service is offered by major private operators. Surat Taxi Hire, Meru Cabs, Ola, Uber, are few of them.

3. Rental Car

Along with city bus and auto-rickshaw, we also have car rental agencies. Savaari, Zoom Car, Bharat Taxi, are a few to name.

4. InterCity Local Trains

We have already shared details about the Surat railway station and trains. Besides, we have a local train service which connects the adjacent cities. Many intra-city stations like Gothangam, Kosad, Utran, Udhna, Bhestan, Niol, and Sachin are interconnected.

Hence, if you plan to visit Surat and want to see nearby locations then trains could be a cheaper and safe option.
