The Sindh Transport Department is battling to keep electric buses running because of charging concerns.
According to media reports, the department has continued operations by deploying red buses on new electric bus lines.
The National Radio and Telecommunications Corporation (NRTC), which purchases, runs and maintains buses, reported that all PBS lines, including electric buses, are currently working.
According to Abdul Shakoor, NRTC spokesman, the PBS fleet on standby is being employed on electric bus routes. The department has placed an order for additional charging stores for the electric buses, which are expected to arrive soon.
The Sindh Mass Transit Authority (SMTA) employed local engineers to repair charging stations. According to the report, local technicians engaged to remedy the problem failed to make charging ports operate.
The Chinese bus manufacturer’s experts promised to remedy the problem. However, the timing for resuming electric bus service is unresolved at this time.
