“I remember when I did a full thread on this Electric Bus stuff, So many people badmouthed it and said it will “stop on 3rd mainland”. We thank God that it has been working for several months with ease and we are getting good numbers on the research being conducted in comparison with the regular BRT Buses. Infact, people prefer to enter it more than the regular ones”
