PMI Electro Mobility has initiated the deployment of the first batch of 25 electric buses on the Rajkot Rajpath route. These buses were ceremonially launched by Gujarat’s Chief Minister, Bhupendra Patel.
This development elevates PMI’s electric bus fleet to a total of 75 operational vehicles in Rajkot, marking a significant stride in promoting eco-friendly transportation and contributing to India’s goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2070. Across the country, PMI now boasts a fleet of over 1200 electric buses.
CEO of PMI, Aanchal Jain, expressed her enthusiasm, stating, “We are delighted to introduce these electric buses to Rajkot Rajpath Ltd.”
She further emphasized the growing preference for electric buses among both commuters and operators, citing their advantages such as zero tailpipe emissions, reduced driver fatigue, noise-free travel, enhanced safety features, and lower operational costs.
Under the agreement with Rajkot Rajpath, PMI will assume responsibility for the operation and management of these electric buses. PMI has also established technologically advanced bus depots dedicated to the efficient administration and operation of electric buses, ensuring citizens have access to dependable and efficient public transportation services.
Each of these 9-meter buses has the capacity to cover approximately 180 kilometers daily and comes equipped with state-of-the-art safety features, including panic buttons, integrated CCTV cameras, designated spaces for wheelchairs, and ramps to facilitate easy boarding and disembarking for passengers with special needs.
