Bengaluru: BMTC Begins Trial Runs Of Electric Bus On 10 Key Routes...,Transport minister Laxman Savadi
said the bus is capable of running 200-250 kilometers in a single charge with the AC on in the city’s regular traffic conditions. After a gap of six years, the Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) Wednesday began trial runs for an electric bus in the city. The 12-meter long AC e-bus has been provided by a Hyderabad-based company.
The trials, which had to be put on hold due to operation and financial issues, resumed after an inspection by Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa
and Deputy CM Laxman Savadi. The bus, with sandbags in place of passengers, is being tested on different routes in Bengaluru.
“The outcomes of this will help us finalise and optimise the operation of electric buses in the city,” BMTC Managing Director
C Shikha. According to BMTC officials, the bus will be driven across key roads, including Mathikere, Nandini Layout, Nelamangala, Vidyaranyapura, Kadugodi, Sarjapura, Kempegowda International Airport, and Bannerghatta.
