Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma flags off 200 Green Buses

Assam Chief Minister Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma dedicated 200 air conditioned electric buses for public commuters of Guwahati on Jan 1 as part of the State Government’s plan to completely transition to a fully green public transport system in the next two years i.e, by Jan 1, 2026.

This initiative is part of the Assam State Transport Corporation’s (ASTC) efforts to curb carbon emissions and phase out older diesel-run buses. The deployment of these e-buses is expected to transform public transport within the city, offering a cleaner and more environmentally friendly alternative.

The buses have been purchased under the Smart City fund.

The move to introduce such a massive number of electric buses in the capital city comes after 100 CNG buses were introduced in Guwahati on Jan 1 this year.

These buses, which will serve 13 routes across Guwahati, have been acquired under the Guwahati Smart City Limited project, showcasing the state’s commitment to leveraging smart technology for urban development.

The launch function began at the ASTC Complex at Rupnagar at 10 am and will was also attended by Transport Minister Parimal Suklabaidya, Guwahati Lok Sabha MP Queen Ojha besides several other ministers and MLAs and senior Transport department officials.
