The Telangana State Road Transport Corporation now has the largest fleet of 40 electric buses, which would be fully operational from Wednesday.

The buses, 20 each from Miyapur 2 Bus Depot and Jubilee Bus station, would make their way to Rajiv Gandhi International Airport.

Speaking to media persons, TSRTC Vice-Chairman and Managing Director Sunil Sharma said given the large number of buses which would ply the roads, the project is not experimental. The TSRTC, he said, has embraced technology and would leverage it ‘in a big way’.

Touching upon the non-polluting nature of the e-buses, Mr. Sharma said they would be immune to fluctuations in fuel prices. He claimed that the Corporation’s agreement with Olectra Greentech Limited and Build Your Dream would be one of the best and would be emulated by other States.
The buses, he said, would make their way to the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport at Shamshabad where they would halt at the arrival ramp. The officials said there were a total of 30 charging points at the Miyapur 2 Bus Depot, JBS and the RGIA.

In another first in the country, the TSRTC would be pressing into service e-buses that are 12-metre in length. As many as 4.7 lakh passengers per month are expected to use the buses.
