Highlighting the importance of inculcating the habit of physical exercise in our lives, the capital’s biggest cycle sharing system is all set to start in our Dwarka. Delhi Development Authority (DDA) is all set to start this cycle sharing system within the sub-city. This plan was started off a few years ago but was not implemented. This time, however, the DDA is planning to implement the plan with full energy and a bigger plan than proposed by New Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC). A DDA authority member also quoted that they would this time bring into plan the private firms too to accelerate up the speed.
The whole system would be on a mobile application wherein the user would have to register and then they would receive an OTP which can be further used to unlock cycles parked at parking stations. The exact model is under constant talks right now but it would although be similar to the existing one of NDMC. At present, senior DDA officials are going through presentations by private cycle sharing firms for the plan. “This cycle sharing system would be the biggest in the city,” DDA vice-chairman Tarun Kapoor told The Times of India. “People will have to subscribe to a mobile app to use the cycles. They would be able to take one cycle from a station and then move in and around Dwarka.
“Kapoor said that there would be sufficient number of docking stations in the area, so that users can pick and drop cycles as per their convenience. “There would be cycle stations at all metro stations for last mile connectivity. There would also be stations at other busy public places like markets,” he added.
This new practice would instill and promote cycling as a recreational as well as physical activity for people of all age groups.
