For one and a half years, the electric bus were stranded in Lumbini, the birthplace of Buddha.

Last year, 19 electric buses were taken to Lumbini, to reduce the environmental pollution there. The meeting of the Lumbini Development Fund Council held today by Federal Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation Minister, Jeevan Ram Shrestha had agreed to run the bus within 1 month.

Taxis and buses have been installed at a cost of 13 million rupees under the clean energy project with the assistance of the Asian Development Bank. The government has incurred customs duty of 3.5 crores. An electric bus charging station has been commissioned in Lumbini for vehicles.

The bus will be used to transport tourists and pilgrims from Gautam Buddha International Airport at Bhairahawa to Lumbini. Similarly, it is aimed to connect Lumbini with various Buddhist sites of Tilaurakot, Ramgram and Devdah and to facilitate the movement of the tourists there.
