Govt may team up with pvt firms to operate e-buses

Electric buses

The Government may soon start operating electric buses in partnership with private players as it looks to improve public transport and reduce pollution. 
 
Niti Aayog has sought comments from stakeholders on a draft model concession agreement for introducing electric-bus fleets in cities for public transportation in public private partnership or PPP mode on operational expenditure (per km basis) model. 
 
According to the draft agreement, made public just days after the Road Transport and Highways Minister Mr Nitin Gadkari, urged private players to run the country’s public transport, the concessionaire shall be required to incur the necessary capital expenditure for procurement of e-buses and operations and maintenance (O&M) infrastructure while the authority shall incur operational expenditure on per kilometre basis. 
 
“The objective is to provide operation and management efficiency of city bus fleet for the authority, while ensuring bankability of the project for the private sector,” the Aayog said in the model concession agreement.
 
Since transport is the state subject, it is the responsibility of state governments to upgrade their public transport systems. However, the Centre has taken the lead in drafting the model concession agreement, which could be used by interested state governments to enter into agreements with private players.
