E-buses likely to run on Agra roads

Now eco-friendly electric buses will be seen instead of CNG vehicles running on the roads of Agra. A proposal for the e-buses was sent to Uttar Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation (UPSRTC) by the Agra roadways.

The proposal is said to be considered by UPSRTC as ethanol-run buses on inner-city routes and vehicles running on bio-fuel for intra-city services will give a less polluted and green environment.

According to the sources, eco-friendly technology in buses will be introduced before the end of 2016. Apart from reducing the pollution levels, the overall cost of operations will also be reduced in the long run.

"At present we pay Rs 25 per kilometer for CNG run buses, but if we use electric buses the cost will come down to Rs 7 per kilometer. The idea is to remove carbon footprints generated by our buses and at the same time use minimum power to run our vehicles. The buses will be charged at stations in night or at bus stops when passengers board or get off", said Ravinder Singh, service manager of Agra roadways and the man behind this idea.
