BENGALURU: Electric buses will replace buses run on diesel in the city in a phased manner for the next five years, Deputy Chief Minister G Parameshwara said on Wednesday.
He was addressing the gathering after inaugurating the eighth edition of three-day BusWorld India exhibition being organised at International exhibition centre near Peenya.
The traffic congestion has become a major problem. Majority of these vehicles run on diesel and are major contributors to environmental pollution. Thus, introduction of electric buses will be a viable solution to reduce pollution and carbon footprint, he said
