India’s first LNG-powered bus rolls out in Kerala – Feedback

Scripting a new chapter in the country’s transport sector which moves towards clean fuel, India’s first liquefied natural gas-driven bus was launched here today.

Union Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister Dharmendra Pradhan and Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan jointly flagged off the first pilot run of the eco-friendly bus on the sidelines of the fourth meeting of the Group of Ministers, set up by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, here. “Along with Hon’able CM of Kerala, flagged off India’s first ever LNG fuel bus for the test run today at Thiruvanthapuram,” Pradhan later tweeted. The LNG-driven bus was rolled out as part of the Centre’s plans to use LNG, considered to be a cleaner and safer fuel which emits 50 per cent less carbon, for mass transportation.
