The National Radio and Telecommunication Corporation (NRTC) has begun the production of electric buses after receiving a demand from the Capital Development Authority (CDA). According to sources, NRTC has notified CDA that it has started manufacturing buses and will deliver the first batch of 30 electric buses next month.

The drivers for these electric buses will be trained after the first batch arrives, and after two weeks of training, the buses will be operational on two routes connecting IJP and Taramri with the Central Metro Bus System in Islamabad. CDA officials have stated that feeder buses will operate on 13 routes, providing world-class travel facilities for approximately 100,000 passengers.

CDA had previously issued a tender for 200 electric buses for 13 routes, but the authority had to reissue the tender due to interest from only two companies. After canceling the bids and inviting new ones, the decision was made to acquire 200 electric buses from NRTC to operate on the new routes.

The second and third batches of 70 buses each from NRTC will be delivered to CDA in June and July, respectively. With the introduction of electric buses, CDA aims to provide eco-friendly public transportation and promote sustainable living in the city.
