Palaniswami to flag off TN’s e-buses for public transport
By Economic Times 25-Aug-2019
“We have selected a route to run the bus on a trial basis. Personnel from Ashok Leyland will drive the bus but the vehicle will carry an MTC symbol and have a conductor from the state department,” a top state government official told ET, adding that the state has created charging infrastructure for the “pilot” at Parry’s corner but there are plans to install charging points at all depots going forward.
Tamil Nadu plans to expand the electric bus project with 525 units under the second phase II of the centre’s FAME scheme, for which the next step would be unveiling of Expression of Interest (EoI) documents, the official said. Ashok Leyland, which is taking measure to temper the effect of the automobile sales slowdown, is exploring opportunities in supplying electric buses to state transport corporations.
