Though Delhi Metro is the lifeline of the city, there's no denying that it is plagued by several issues, the major one being- last mile connectivity. This is something that's a deal-breaker for many and the reason why people tend to skip the metro altogether. In order to bring about a change, a new startup has tied up with DMRC to provide e-bikes that can be rented out by passengers.

What's the update?

In order to make travelling in Delhi metro more convenient than ever before, Yulu has stepped up and they're changing the game. With their plan to introduce rentable e-bikes, they're changing how Delhiites use the metro.

Since these bikes are completely manual, you'll be helping the environment and yourself at the same time. Add to that the fact that the price for renting the bikes is really cheap and you're good to go.

Where can you find these bikes?

As of now, the company, along with DMRC, is coming up with the plan only at two metro routes- Blue Line and Yellow Line. Since these are highly frequented by people from all walks of life, it would be a good trial run to see exactly how useful the bikes are.

The company has plans to make use of at least 5,000 cycles by the end of this year. Since they're starting out at major metro routes, this should hardly be a problem for them. In the future, they wish to expand their network drastically and have a presence of about 25,000 e-bikes.

However, this is not the first time that such an initiative has been taken. DMRC has previously brought in similar set of bikes but poor marketing, rendered the bikes useless.

Knock Knock

This is one of those rare changes that come about once in several months. Once you're all familiar with the concept, you'll be wondering how you manage without it. Last mile connectivity is a real problem and these e-bikes can turn out to be a great eco-friendly option.
