The city got its first set of battery-operated buses on Tuesday with twenty more buses to follow in the coming days. The initiative for providing these buses was taken under the ongoing Smart City project.
The buses were flagged off with much fanfare from the electronic recharging point at Kochabhawar area by Jhansi MP, Anurag Sharma in presence of mayor, Ram Teerath Singhal and MLA Ravi Sharma.
The buses will run in both urban and rural areas of the district which include Babina, Mauranipur, Railway station etc.
For the first time the residents of the city will be enjoying a city bus ride which is likely to ease their daily commuting.
Jhansi MP Anurag Sharma said, “Initially fifteen buses have been sanctioned for the city of which five rolled down on Tuesday and remaining will start ply soon”. The government will sanction more buses in future after seeing profitability of running these buses, he added.
Ravi Sharma, MLA from the city said the new bus besides helping daily commuters will also help fight global warming by cutting the pollution level.
