Low-emission Buses Help Cut Congestion and Pollution in Kathmandu

Client: Asian Development Bank (ADB)

A fleet of 17 new high-tech, low-emission buses is taking to the roads in Kathmandu, helping cut congestion and pollution in Nepal's busy capital city. Passengers can also use cards to pay their fare, while the buses themselves are disabled-friendly. A Global Positioning System (GPS) also lets passengers track buses in real time. This public private partnership initiative between transport operators and the Government of Nepal, is part of an ADB project to improve mass transport in Kathmandu Valley.
