    The transition to electric buses aims to contribute to building a pollution-free society that prioritizes environmental well-being. The buses stop at Suryapet for 20 minutes to recharge, enabling them to cover up to 300 kilometers on a single charge. The Chairman and Managing Director of Olectra Green Tech Limited announced that they would supply a total of 560 electric buses to TSRTC on a gross cost contract basis. The initial phase includes ten buses, with the remaining buses to be provided in the near future.
