BMTC - get electric buses now!

BMTC - get electric buses now!

Diesel smoke is affecting the lungs of Bangaloreans (especially kids). BMTC has promised to get electric buses. We want them to act on their promise without delay.

Let's protect our lungs. Sign and share this today!

Why is this important?

We have all held our breath when next to a BMTC bus spewing black smoke. These bus emissions contain harmful toxic pollutants that impact our health causing respiratory disorders, heart disease, tiredness etc.

The BMTC has been promising to introduce electric buses for many years now. It's time they stop delaying and start acting.

Sign the petition to the Managing Director, and share this with all Bangaloreans you know.

Together we can protect our lungs and breathe cleaner air.

Reasons for signing

  • Bmtc buses are not fit for this polluted city. They are polluting vehicles. AC buses are the main reason for that.
  • This is just BS. The government won't do as you say. Also, you literally don't know what you're talking about. The pollution is due to old vehicles and not mainly buses. The government has done a few things to control pollution such as using Bio Diesel for BMTC buses.
  • Bring electric buses on road and get quite releif from pollution
