In 1946, the
first communal riots took place in Ahmedabad in 1941 and the atmosphere intensified in 1946. Buses were stopped by private companies during such a period of crisis and so citizens felt insecure in such a dire situation. The condition of the buses of private companies (Austin and Studdbaker) was very bad.

The clock and anticlock routes were started from the red door in 1947.

At the center of commercial organizations was a for-profit purpose, so the citizen made a huge demand for public transport service. The Ahmedabad Municipality decided to start public sector bus service with a view to end the hardships of the people and provide them with good service at a reasonable rate.



AMTS bus service started one
and a half months before independence on 1-4-47, i.e. one and a half months before independence 60 municipal buses were running on the road. There was a lot of excitement among the people for the new buses and people started flocking to see the municipal buses on the bus route, as Ahmedabad was the first in the country to launch a public sector bus service and was warmly welcomed by the citizens. The people of the city were proud of the bus service started by the municipality.




The seats in the new buses were shiny and comfortable. All routes started from the red gate (elite) and the railway station. With the exception of a few minor changes, all the routes and route numbers introduced by the Morris Company were almost identical, so that passengers did not face any problems at that time.
