India’s first electric bus starts running in Bangalore


India’s first electric bus has started running on Bangalore’s roads. The city’s transport corporation launched this bus last week.

The electric bus will run on a trial basis for three months after which hopefully, it will be a regular feature on Bangalore roads. The bus has zero emission levels, operates on a battery that lasts five hours and can cover a distance of 250 km.

Fitted with CCTV cameras, the bus also has a disabled-friendly design. But these buses don’t come cheap. Bangalore’s transport corporation is hoping to get financial aid from the state government in the months to come.
