Each RTC Diesel Bus spends 20 Rupees for every Kilometer. The expense comes down to 7 Rupees per Kilometer for Electric buses. But then, procuring an electric bus will cost 2 Crore Rupees for the corporation. Hence, RTC is thinking on the lines of converting Diesel buses into electric buses.


To this extent, TSRTC has handed over one ordinary diesel bus belonging to Musheerabad depot to a private company and converted it into an electric bus. The bus is being examined. The bus would be brought on city roads soon. The RTC hopes to convert more diesel buses to electric buses if this experiment works. It costs around Rs 60-65 lakh to convert each diesel bus to an electric bus.


However, RTC officials said that the conversion cost of the first bus would be borne by the private company. If the performance of the bus is better, the idea is to convert 50 percent of the 2800 RTC buses in the Greater Hyderabad zone into electric buses in phases. With the increase in the number of electric buses, adequate charging stations can be set up at the depot. Officials say there are already more than 20 charging points available at the Miyapur and Cantonment depots. In Greater Hyderabad, RTC operates 20,000 trips a day with 2800 buses. If the revenue from these is up to Rs 3 crore per day, up to Rs 1.5 crore will have to be paid for diesel.
