The US Ambassador to India shared that the characteristics of the bus are one of the few reasons behind the US government taking the decision to work with the Indian government and launch 10,000 electric buses. The initiative is to introduce a huge fleet of 10,000 electric buses on different streets of the country.

The idea of this association began back when Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the US and went to the White House, according to a report by NDTV. The announcement of the plan was made during the PM’s official visit to the US in 2023.

There are many advantages to choosing electric transportation facilities. These produce no noise and no emission and these play a huge role in saving nature and the planet in the long run.

Also, both India and the US are set to contribute joint support to a payment security mechanism. This is for enhancing the electric transportation condition in the country. In fact, it is going to have a huge positive impact on the PM e-Bus Sewa scheme.
