    Government’s electric bus scheme doing rounds in the city

    TN Chief Minister flags off first electric bus in Chennai

    This is the first of 525 buses the state government plans to ply, with the objective of reducing air pollution.

    • The bus can travel for 50 kilometres once completely charged and hold a maximum of 50 people.
    • Currently the only charging point is at the central depot.
    • While a regular Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation vehicle costs close to Rs 30 lakh, a battery-operated bus cost Rs.1.5-2 crore. But this investment reduces the purchase of fuel which is recurring expense in the fuel vehicles.
    • The electric bus is fixated on only one route – from Thiruvanmiyur to Chennai Central.
