Dr. Philipp Ackermann, Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany to India and Bhutan, “Having a private company providing sustainable transportation as a business model and having the reduction of CO2 emissions as part of the company’s DNA is very encouraging. Strengthening collective travel in order to reduce emissions from the transport sector is a global undertaking that requires significant efforts from both the German and Indian Governments, our societies, and industries. Making bus travel more convenient and accessible is an important lever to increase the attractiveness of collective transport.”
