Fans queueing up to catch the Formula One action at the Buddh International Circuit can look forward to being ferried from the parking area to the venue on ’Green Cabs’ – three-wheelers that run on electricity.

The cabs, launched today, are the first of their kind in the country. The cabs have built-in GPS systems, fare meter with a printout and a back-up call centre for cabs on demand.

“The launch of Green Cabs at Formula One is part of business relationship with Buddh International Circuit to provide for a cleaner transportation during Formula One event.

Also this is a prelude to what we are giving to our society in terms of zero carbon emission and mode of cleaner transport system at the venue,” said Ajay Singh, chairman of Green Wheels Pvt Ltd, a Delhi and Noida-based company.

The company is also providing Buddh International Utility Staff with 100 electric scooters.

“The electric scooters are being used by the marshals and the JPSI utility personnel during the Formula One event. This will be a small but a very important component for the success of Formula One,” Singh said.
