Muzaffarpur City Bus Service will be powered by CNG
Last year, when I told you that GAIL was building 3 CNG outlets in Muzaffarpur, we first learned that some towns in Bihar would soon be using CNG vehicles on their streets.
Subsequently, in April of this year, we learned that BSRTC would soon be operating CNG-powered buses between certain cities.
Last month, the government of Bihar launched 50 CNG buses for use on the streets of the state capital.
Two days ago we learned that Muzaffarpur will be launching the city bus service from October of this year.
Today a local newspaper (Hindustan) says these buses will be powered by CNG. This means that the city bus service which will start in Muzaffarpur from October this year will be powered by CNG.
This Saturday, the administrator of the BSRTC, Shyam Kishore, arrived in Muzaffarpur.
In order to launch the CNG City Bus service in the city soon, he met with the district magistrate, Pranav Kumar.
After meeting with the district magistrate, he visited the BSRTC regional office located in Imlichatti, Muzaffarpur.
There, he said, the city bus service will operate on all main roads in Muzaffarpur.
The number of seats in these buses will be between 18 and 22.
The municipal corporation will buy these buses and the transportation corporation will operate them.
These buses will run between 8 and 10 km.
In order to supply these buses in the city, GAIL India has received the tender to build the CNG plant in Bela, Muzaffarpur.
