E-scooters will be brought to 5 stations in Delhi.

According to DMRC’s plan, e-scooters will be appointed, along with the current bicycle sharing services in order to empower last-mile connectivity options for metro users. DMRC aims to develop the services of bicycle sharing which are available at 19 stations at present. According to a report from ETAuto, e-scooters will be available in stations comprising of Nehru Enclave, Dwarka Sector 9, Durgabai Deshmukh South Campus and Mandi House.

In addition, it also aims to improve bicycle sharing system used at its current stations. Accordingly, the authority plans to set up a docking system that is wholly automated where people can unlock bicycles at the stands via QR codes. These codes will be created on mobile applications. In addition, users will need to provide an ID when they want to rent these e-scooters.

DMRC intends to offer rent free area for bicycle stands and charging stations for e-scooters right at the cycle stands as per the report. However, private operators will be in charge of these services.

Additionally, when using e-scooters, users will have to pay an amount of charge from Re 1/km. The total fee will base on the overall kilometers that users ride the vehicle, which is monitored via a built-in GPS.

The bigger agenda here is to offer eco-friendly selections for last mile connectivity. This will reduce the use of fossil-fuel-powered vehicles at present, leading to the decline in the total emission amount that each traveler releases when using these vehicles. Another benefit is to reduce traffic in a city, since two-wheel vehicles are expected to allow the traveler to go through small space that is occupied on the street.
