Goa Proudly Welcomes 30 New Electric Buses

A new milestone was achieved for the state of Goa. “We are the witness for the transformation of the traditional fossil fuel buses to battery-operated buses after the period of 150 years,” said Sanjay Ghate, the general manager of Kadamba Transport Corporation (KTC).

Thirty electric air-conditioned buses were flagged off by chief minister, Pramod Sawant, in the presence of the Transport Minister Mauvin Godinho near the Merces Junction. This marked an e-vehicle era in the state. Electric charging stations will be put up all over Goa so that the buses can be recharged. At the moment, there is only one charging station located at the Kadamba Transport Corporation depot at Margao.

These vehicles reduce the greenhouse effect as no air is needed for combustion like an internal combustion engine.

Goa has 1,200 private buses which are mostly mini-buses, and 500 Kadamba buses. There are around 350 tourist buses in the state.
