Government sanctioned 50 e-buses for Tirupati
As a part of the government’s initiative towards electric vehicle policy, Tirupati will get 50 e-buses soon. Government is planning to buy 1000 e-buses on the whole. During the first phase, around 350 buses will be allotted for major cities like Tirupati, Visakhapatnam, Vijayawada, Amaravathi. Out of 350, Tirupati will get 50 e-buses.
The advantage of e-transport is zero-emission, thereby preventing air from getting polluted. Tirupati area has apparently requested 350 e-buses with the goal that the entire fleet of buses between Tirupati and Tirumala can be replaced from the current BS-IV standard buses.
Tirupati will get 50 e-buses soon
In this way, it was found out that 50 e-buses were endorsed in the primary stage which in all probability may ply between Tirupati and Tirumala and a couple of buses to Srikalahasti and Tiruchanur. As and when more buses are sanctioned then they will be thrown into utilization for Tirumala pilgrims.
Anyhow, the customary charging infrastructure confines the driving distance and charging systems that empower long driving distance is very expensive. With one full charge of around three hours, these buses can keep running up to around 250 kilometers. As indicated by an authority of the APSRTC, charging stations will be set up at Alipiri, Mangalam, Tirumala and Srikalahasti terminals.
With a seating limit of 40, these electric buses will have present-day passenger luxuries and are said to be safeguarded as they are furnished with safety measures and shielded from short-circuits.
These transports will certainty help RTC to relieve from fuel burden as the Corporation was spending an enormous sum on diesel, thereby it can benefit the RTC financially. According to an estimate, it costs the Corporation Rs 20 per km with diesel and with electric buses they can save up to Rs 14 per km. The buses made preliminary runs to Tirumala and the feedback was submitted to RTC executives.
