Transport Ministry to review bus procurement plan

The Transport Ministry has withdrawn from the cabinet its plan to purchase 200 electric buses or EVs for reconsideration.

Transport Minister Arkhom Termpittayapaisit said Wednesday that the move stemmed from the fact that the ministry has wanted to overhaul the entire bus procurement plan as well as bus maintenance because there are more options about the vehicles and fuels.

These include the original plan to purchase 3,183 NGV buses whether the plan will be changed or kept, said the minister, adding that he expected the review would take about two months after which a revised plan will be submitted to the cabinet for consideration.
