    State government to start electric buses in selected routes

    Chennai looks at a battery-powered future

    Aimed at reducing carbon emissions, the Tamil Nadu government recently kicked off an initiative to run 500 electric buses in three cities —Chennai, Madurai & Coimbatore. With the first phase rolled out, Chennaiites discuss the pros and cons.

    • Maintaining electric buses will be critical and expensive and only 10% of the lead acid batteries can be reused.
    • Electric buses are easier to implement in Coimbatore than Chennai, where buses are the the centre of intracity transportation.
    • Infrastructural support should be established for these buses in the city, where in case of a breakdown, multiple charge points must be present.
