Delhi Metro Rail Corporation on 7 January 2015 launched first public bicycle sharing scheme for Delhi Metro users. The scheme will help the commuters to seamlessly reach their destination via the metro rail.

The scheme aims to provide pollution free last-mile connectivity to DMRC commuters. The eco-friendly project was inaugurated from the Saket Metro Station in south Delhi.

As part of the scheme, three bicycle shelters have been opened at Saket, Hauz Khas and Akshardham metro stations.

Commuters willing to use the service need to either register online or visit the nearby metro station where the facility is available and deposit their forms, following which a smart card will be issued to them.

As part of its last-mile connectivity, DMRC has been running 200 metro feeder buses and about 300 more such buses will soon be added to its fleet.

The DMRC has already been running a hire-a-cycle scheme from its Vishwavidyalaya metro Station in last six years in partnership with city-based private firm Greenolution.

Such bicycle schemes are quite popular in European and Scandinavian countries and our idea is also to promote eco-friendly policies.
