Green Urban Transport Scheme also known as GUTS in short form which mainly focused to reduce the emission of harmful carbon gas from the transportation, especially from government-owned transport facilities. Under this scheme, the government plans to launch the eco-friendly transportation facilities which run without damaging climatic conditions. The main aim is to reduce the emission of Carbon in transport vehicles. In this scheme central government, India plans to launch new public transport facilities which emit a low level of carbon gas just like metro rails, transport facilities which are nonmotorized in urban areas across the nation.

Government Investment in Green Urban Transport Scheme: Rs.25, 000 Crores

  1. GUTS are fully featured with Intelligent Transport System (ITS)
  2. Benefits of Hi-tech facilities in public transport vehicles under the Green Urban Transport Scheme (GUTS)
  3. Benefits of efficient public transport vehicles
  4. Benefits to reduce the emission of Carbon in transport vehicles which are good for health

Features of Green Urban Transport Scheme (GUTS):
