In a good news for the denizens of Bhubaneswar, they don’t have to pay any fare if they are travelling through Mo e-buses and e-rickshaws in the Capital City on Thursday.

The joint initiative has been taken by Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC), Capital Region Urban Transport (CRUT) and State Pollution Control Board in a bid to create awareness about keeping the environment neat and clean on the occasion of Clean Air Day today.

The announcement was made by Mayor Sulochana Das during a walkathon organised in Bhubaneswar on the occasion of Clean Air Day.

As air pollution is increasing on each passing day, the initiative has been taken to promote e-buses and e-rickshaws in Bhubaneswar to control the air pollution.

“@CRUT_BBSR & @bmcbbsr come together to celebrate #InternationalDayOfCleanAirForBlueSkies let's embark on a journey to a cleaner, greener future! On 7th September 23, hop on Mo E-Bus & Mo E-Ride & pledge to contribute towards sustainability. Let’s pave the way for a green future,” tweeted CRUT.

Notably, as many as 50 e-buses and e-rickshaws each are plying on 10 routes in Bhubaneswar. Passengers don’t have to pay anything if they are traveling in e-buses and e-rickshaws through these routes in the Capital City today.

Notably, the International Day of Clean Air is commemorated annually on September 7 in recognition of the fact that clean air is important for the health and day-to-day life of people.
