It is to be mentioned that the Assam government is procuring as many as 25 electric buses under the FAME scheme. Earlier, the managing director of Assam State Transport Corporation (ASTC) Anand Prakash Tiwari informed that 15 electric buses would run across Guwahati.

The first electric bus is likely to ply in the city on the Kamakhya temple route this summer, as reported in The Assam Tribune.

The buses will be deployed phase-wise in all the routes to provide emission-free communication in the city and charging stations will be installed at Inter-State Bus Terminal, Guwahati and Assam State Transport Corporation’s Paltan Bazar complex.
