The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) on September 21, 2021 has issued the Draft Central Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Rules, 2021 to further amend the Central Motor Vehicle Rules 1989.

The City of Shenzhen has China’s, and the world’s, first and largest fully electric bus and taxi fleets. Shenzhen. Electrification of public transport provides an opportunity to achieve multiple objectives of low-carbon urban development, reduction of local air pollution, creation of jobs, and higher acceptance of public transport by residents.

This is the second paper in a series describing the development of tools and methods to perform route-level analysis of electric bus operations. The broad goal is to support transitions to zero-emission bus fleets and identify the least-cost approaches for widespread procurement and deployment of these technologies.

Many cities have sought to replicate the urban bus public-private partnership (PPP) structures that succeeded at the beginning of the millennia, such as those implemented in Brazil, Colombia, and Mexico.

Since the first EV City Casebook was released in 2012, cities around the world have overseen huge changes in mobility. Electric cars, buses, and taxis have rapidly increased in numbers, moving beyond early pilots and trials. New forms of micromobility and smartphone-based transport systems have grown in popularity.

The State Road Transport Undertakings (SRTUs) are an important player in providing bus-based public transport to urban and rural population of the country. They account for about 8% of the total bus fleet being used for road transport in the country with the remaining 92% being held by private operators.

As electric and hybrid-electric buses gradually become a reality worldwide, achieving a better understanding of the mechanisms supporting investments in these new technologies as well as their assets is more important than ever.

The Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC), which has been unsuccessfully attempting to get new buses since 2008, is going to take another shot at augmenting its fleet, with the AAP government Thursday

It is clear that without an augmented public transport system, Delhi and other cities of India will not be able to combat toxic air pollution. It is also clear that currently our public transport infrastructure is grossly inadequate. Cities like Beijing, for instance, have 107 buses per lakh people. Delhi has 17 buses per lakh people.

This sets out the impact of current global policies, the changes in the global fleet and new global efficiency targets to accelerate the uptake of clean and efficient vehicles for vehicle efficiency.
