Kolkata is all set to roll out eco-friendly buses running on biogas as fuel. As many as 12 buses running on biogas will start plying on 12 routes in the city from March, Hindustan Times has reported.
The first route to get these buses is between Ultadanga and Garia, a stretch of 17 kms.
According to the report, the fares are just Re 1 irrespective of the distance. The low fare has been attributed to the fuel efficiency of the vehicle which can cover 20 km on a kg of biogas that costs just Rs 30.
