Several firms have begun running electric buses, and a tender for 40 electric buses to be carried by public transportation will be issued on July 2nd, with the expectation that the electric bus would be delivered within six months.
Sajha launched a 45-day global contest for the procurement of 40 electric buses on April 27. Despite the fact that the tender lasted 45 days, it was postponed owing to the international crown, according to public transportation. The procurement process has proceeded, according to Bhushan Tuladhar, a member of the Joint Transportation Steering Committee. According to him, the tender would be assessed approximately a month and a half after it was opened.
The group comes to an agreement, and electric buses can be deployed within six months of that accord. “It has been delayed by two months owing to Corona,” Tuladhar explained. Following the evaluation of the tender, an agreement will be reached.” The building work would be carried out in phases, according to him, as per the agreement.
To pass the exam, the building business must first drive three buses on Nepalese streets. More buses will be added if the test is successful, according to Tuladhar. According to him, the agreement states that the firm would not only buy the bus but will also repair it for five years, with a delay of a few days because the package must include the procurement of replacement parts for maintenance.
With the provision of Rs. 3 billion, the Ministry of Physical Infrastructure and Transport will provide 40 buses with 26 seats of nine meters in length; In the initial phase, 40 buses will be prepared. The Department of Physical Infrastructure and Transportation halted the acquisition process on September 20, 2008, while developing the joint venture specification, claiming that the work had not advanced as planned.
20 beautiful buses coming from Sundar Yatayat Pvt Ltd ( an electric bus operator) have stopped in Singapore. Due to the Corona shutdown, Sundar Yatayat chairman Bhesh Bahadur Thapa claimed that the bus transported from China is currently in Singapore. As soon as the prohibition in India is lifted, 40-seat buses will be imported into Nepal.
Sundar Yatayat has invested Rs 500 million in bus purchases after the government pushed the usage of electric buses. Butwal, Biratnagar, Narayangarh, and Nepalgunj are among the important cities outside the Kathmandu Valley where buses will be run. Sundar Yatayat now operates four electric buses in the Kathmandu Valley.
