KOCHI: The Kerala State Road Transport Corporation on Monday launched its first electric bus on a trial basis in Thiruvananthapuram.

The Corporation will carry out the trial run for 15 days – eight days in Thiruvananthapuram (Thampanoor main bus stand to Kazhakoottam) and seven days in Ernakulam, after which it will run in Kochi and Kozhikode.

The second service is likely to be launched from East Fort to Pappanamcode via Kovalam and Technopark.
