Kerala first state to launch LNG buses

The Kerala State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) has announced plans to introduce 100 LNG-powered buses with the support of Petronet LNG Limited (PLL). KSRTC is also building an LNG dispensing station at Anayara in association with IOCL. The MoPNG launched the first LNG-powered bus in the country in Kochi in November 2016. LNG is a cleaner and cheaper fuel as compared to diesel. The buses will have compressed natural gas engines and will use LNG as the fuel.
