CNG for all new buses in Delhi

Close to midnight Indian time, I finally got to write some lines from the last two days.

Early in the morning the 5th most of the speakers from the seminar in Bangalore travelled together to Delhi. The trip went smooth and we had time for an excursion in the Delhi traffic. We got a Volvo B7R bus for the tour! It stood out among the local buses. The local market is mainly dominated by Tata.

Dehli, India

The are similarities between Bangalore and Delhi traffic situation. In both cases, in general, the traffic is really dense and the congestion problems need urgent actions, most of the vehicles idle the engine most of the time. For the current situation the hybrid will be very usefull. But in Bangalore I experienced a larger variation in vehicle mix (bikes, motorbikes, three-wheelers, cars, different kinds of trucks and buses).

In Dehli, by first sight there were more of the larger vehicles and most three wheelers run on natural gas. CNG is also required for all new buses. This is not the case for Bangalore. Therefore I reworked a part of my presentation to better capture the Delhi situation.
