Even in Bangalore, Karnataka, there is a proposal to get 150 electric buses in the next few months, Delhi is planning for 500 buses. Looks like this is a green drive across the major cities to reduce the air pollution. Diesel buses are the backbone of any city's public transport service. If this is introduced as a upgrade for passenger comfort like the WR AC trains, it's good. If this is introduced to cut down pollution, it's a joke, because there are countless lorries and good vehicles that emit black smoke like chimneys as compared to the buses. It would be a welcome change for the regular commuters who would want to have a comfortable ride. But are we ready for it. Each of these buses roughly cost 3 times the cost of the regular buses. We, the public passengers also should use them in a responsible manner. The maintenance also should be looked into because in India, we invest on new technology but later find that funds for maintenance and spare parts are difficult to come from the government.
