Hyderabad: After Metro Rail, Govt. of Telangana State had decided to launch electric buses in the city to provide end-to-end connectivity. In September 2018, electric buses were flagged off from Secretariat but these buses are not available for the public.
Authentic sources indicated that trial run of electric buses has been completed and all the approvals have been obtained. Authorities are waiting for green signal from the Govt. to ply these buses on city routes. It is expected that after the formation of the State Cabinet, permission will be accorded.
It may be mentioned that out of 100, forty electric buses have already reached Secunderabad Cantonment and Miyapur bus depots. These busses will ply from various places to Hyderabad International Airport.
