Battery operated buses to soon hit Chennai roads

Press Trust of India  |  Chennai 

Battery operated buses will soon hit the city roads as the government today announced these would be operated after necessary tests.

"Currently, we have taken up various tests (on the buses). Very soon, steps will be taken to run battery operated buses across Chennai city", M R Vijayabhaskar told reporters here.

Last year, his Ministry inspected some electric buses supplied by Ashok Leyland.

The flagship firm had unveiled "CIRCUIT", designed and manufactured with zero emission vehicle suitable for Indian road and load conditions.

Vijayabhaskar earlier inspected some school buses to issue certificates ahead of the commencement of academic year.

"Certificates are issued to operate the buses after inspecting the safety measures provided in the buses", he said.
