Melaka Starts Electric Bus Services

MELAKA: Melaka akan menggunakan bas elektrik bagi perkhidmatan bas henti-henti di bawah anak syarikat kerajaan negeri, Panorama Melaka Sdn Bhd bermula bulan depan, kata Ketua Menteri Datuk Seri Idris Haron.

Beliau berkata pada masa ini syarikat berkenaan sedang melakukan kajian peringkat akhir bagi menentukan laluan paling sesuai serta kadar tambang berpatutan bagi perkhidmatan bas elektrik yang pertama kali diperkenalkan di negara ini.

Berbanding penggunaan bas diesel syarikat itu pada masa sekarang, Idris yakin perkhidmatan bas elektrik dapat menjimatkan pelbagai kos antaranya penyelengaraan dan bahan api yang sentiasa meningkat.

"Kos permulaan bas elektrik ini agak besar, tetapi saya percaya dengan penjimatan yang kita dapat dengan guna bas elektrik ini akan mendatangkan pulangan jangka panjang kepada kita," katanya kepada Bernama di sini hari ini.

Terdahulu beliau meluangkan masa kira-kira 20 minit memandu uji sendiri bas elektrik itu di sekitar Pusat Dagangan Antarabangsa Melaka di sini yang turut disertai wartawan Bernama, pegawai kanan kerajaan negeri dan Setiausaha Kerajaan Negeri Melaka Datuk Naim Abu Bakar.

Bas elektrik itu mempunyai kelajuan maksimum 45 kilometer sejam, mampu membawa sehingga 35 penumpang dan boleh bergerak sejauh kira-kira 400 kilometer sebelum dicas semula.

Malacca will use electric buses for stage bus service under a state government subsidiary, Panorama Melaka Sdn Bhd , said Chief Minister Datuk Seri Idris Haron.
He said that currently the company is doing a study to determine the final best path and affordable fares for electric bus that will be the first to be introduced in the country.
Compared with diesel buses, the company at present, Idris assured the electric bus can save various costs including maintenance and fuel which is constantly increasing.
"The initial cost of electric buses is quite large, but I believe the savings we are able to use electric buses will bring long-term returns to us," he told Bernama here today.
Earlier he spent about 20 minutes to test drive the electric bus around Melaka International Trade Centre here accompanied by Bernama journalist, senior state officials and Malacca State Secretary Datuk Naim Abu Bakr.
Electric bus has a maximum speed of 45 kilometers per hour, can carry up to 35 passengers and can travel as far as 400 miles before recharge.
