Nowadays traffic is increasing at higher rate because of high population growth rate. It is reason we need more numbers of road and bridges while considering Traffic management issues. In such situations we engineers have to be more accurate at our own work. Though we take care of smooth functioning of traffic operation in smart cities, there is need of smart mode of public transportation like Bus Rapid Transit System which is proved as very beneficial in developed countries. In this research authors consider prior and feasibility study BRTs of cities where BRTs is already implemented or proposed to work. Traffic measurement and improvement parameters, such as flow of traffic, time and speed of travel, stop time, delay time, consumption of fuel, were modeled to investigate the impact of BRT. Before actual implementation of any new public transport mode one must have to study user’s behavior, impact on current urban traffic system, demand performance. Some operations like modeling, simulation, and demand supply analysis, availability of land or land acquisition need, government byelaws related to project should be analyzed. For all the above study wise capital of Maharashtra Nagpur city taken as case study and Pune BRT is taken as model system. Aundh to Ravet BRT track of Pune BRT is the study corridor for existing system study. BRT standards design by Institute for Transportation Development Planning are principles on which we had design an ideal BRT system for Amravati road to chhatrapati square stretch of Nagpur city ring road. As a conclusion BRT is found to be a very impressive and easy mode of transport for Nagpur city because of its benefits such as low construction cost, less time for implementation, easy to grasp system for new users. BRTs is provided with smart facilities equivalent to metros like collection of fare off board, advanced buses with dedicated right of way, separate alignment for buses throughout its road stretch, platform level boarding, special designed bus preferred intersection treatment.
