  • | Saturday | 2nd December, 2023

Noida: With only 100 e-bicycle users every day in the cit y and close to 700 monthly pass holders, the Noida Authority is set to review the progress of its e-bicycle project even as it plans to add 300 cycles across 31 locations in the second phase of the project.Noida officials said if the service gets a good response, it can become a regular form of transportation in the city.Chandra Mohan Bali, from the company managing the operations of the service Turban Mobility, said, We are planning to add more docking stations to allow greater access to people and increase the user base. Right now, we get the majority of riders at docking stations at Sector 125 near Amity University, Sector 63, and Sector 121. The extension of the services can see docking stations towards Greater Noida (West) where riders often take the bicycles so our can teams ensure a smooth handover from them.The docking stations are not present at all the locations, and travelling to places like Greater Noida is a problem. If the services are expanded, it will increase convenience in these locations, said Alok Kumar, a regular user of the e-bicycle service in Noida.E-bicycle services were launched in April this year. The service is available from 7am to 11pm for a charge of Rs 15 for 30 minutes and a monthly subscription of Rs 1499. The second phase of the service might also extend the timings to 24 hours. Officials have stated that some docking stations, such as the one in sector 60, are currently being used for vehicle parking. However, they also confirmed that the parking will be discontinued once the services at the docking stations commence. The Noida authority teams will also be monitoring these activities to ensure compliance. The quarterly plan for e-bicycle services is available for Rs 3600, and the annual subscription is for Rs 11000. Road design and safety experts said while the spirit of such initiatives is encouraging for public health and the environment, the road infrastructure should be made robust before they are launched.We also published the following articles recentlyApple, Paramount may bundle their streaming services: Whats in for usersApple and Paramount Global are in talks to bundle their streaming services, combining Paramount+ and Apple TV+ subscriptions.
