Here’s a good news for the Delhites! The Delhi metro feeder bus services will be enhanced for the passengers in the national capital as DMRC proposes to introduce more electric feeder buses soon. This is a step further to improve the last mile connectivity to ensure safety and security of the passengers.
It’s reported that tenders for the procurement, operation and maintenance of as many as 100 electric feeder buses have been floated and soon these buses will be on road.
This action can be seen as a step to further the FAME India scheme under the National Electric Mobility Mission Plan (NEMMP) 2020 which is a National Mission providing the vision and the roadmap for the faster adoption of electric vehicles and their manufacturing in the country.
Special features : Fully air-conditioned and as the name suggests they run on electricity
These electrically run vehicles will be non polluting to the environment of the city which is already struggling to breathe in clean air, therefore helping control the pollution levels. It serves two purpose – firstly, enhancing the travel experience of the citizens by dropping them to the nearest possible spot to their destination and secondly, letting the city breathe quality air.
Public e-vehicles are the best possible alternative to switch from the conventional mode of transport at this point of time to combat and control the increasing global concern of air pollution and green-house effect.
