The Union Government and World Bank have signed a US 9.2 million dollar grant agreement for the Efficient and Sustainable City Bus Service Project. The grant agreement was signed under World Bank-Global Environment Facility (GEF) Programme. Key Facts The Efficient and Sustainable City Bus Service Project aims at improving the efficiency and attractiveness of city bus transport and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in select Indian cities. These select demonstration cities are Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh), Chandigarh, Jaipur (Rajasthan) and Mira Bhayandar municipality in the Thane district of Maharashtra.
