Bhubaneswar, through strategic investments in public transit infrastructure and last mile connectivity modes, aims to induce a shift by 20% travel to public transport by 2021. As per its Bus Modernization Plan, 38.7kms of Priority Transit Corridors will require 148 new electric buses to move 192,000 daily passengers. For first-last mile connectivity within its ABD, the City proposes deployment of 500 e-rickshaws, allied infrastructure and charging stations by 2021. These two project proposals combined will act as a catalyst to help Bhubaneswar achieve its target of 30% of vehicle travel in the city through electric vehicles by 2030.
