Mumbai will get 900 electric double-decker buses, with the iconic red buses making a comeback to the city’s roads.
“The BEST double-decker, now electric! CM Uddhav Thackeray and I have been personally keen on reviving Mumbai’s iconic double-decker buses,” Maharashtra minister Aaditya Thackeray tweeted on Thursday, sharing an image of the fully electric, red double-decker bus.
He said the aim is to ultimately get 10,000 electric or clean, alternate fuel buses for Mumbai.
“As we increase our BEST fleet, ultimately to 10,000 electric/clean alternate fuel buses, our aim is to have maximum double-decker buses, as this increases our capacity.”
