Kerala mulls promoting green travel via e-autos under RT packages

Kerala is planning to promote sustainable and green travel initiatives in the popular and emerging tourist destinations.
As part of this plan, a certain percentage of tourists visiting the Responsible Tourism (RT) Mission packages at various destinations will be encouraged to travel green by offering e-auto and bicycle safaris. The project will be implemented by RT Mission with the cooperation of local self-government bodies.

Rupesh Kumar, State Coordinator of the RT Mission, said the Mission had an ambitious plan to implement an RT protocol in all the destinations as part of ensuring economic and environmental responsibility.

“We cannot switch to green travel all of a sudden, but the Mission is hopeful of nudging a certain per cent of tourists who visit under the Responsible Tourism packages to travel green by promoting e-autos and bicycling by empowering local women groups in selected destinations,” said Kumar.
