DMRC joins the Yulu bike sharing app for last mile connectivity

New Delhi, September 2 () The Yulu bicycle sharing company launched operations in the national capital on Monday, serving nine subway stations in Delhi in blue and yellow lines.

The company has launched services from Dilli Haat (INA) to JLN Stadium in central Delhi in collaboration with Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) to address first and last mile connectivity for travelers and to reduce congestion and pollution in the city.

With the launch of our operations in Delhi, we are providing an ecological transportation option to the residents of Delhi and we are committed to expanding our services to the entire NCR region. We are proud to collaborate with DMRC for a common vision of improving first and last-mile connectivity, reducing congestion and improving air quality, Yulu Bikes chief executive Amit Gupta told reporters here.

Yulu intends to deploy 5,000 non-motorized electric vehicles, YULU Miracles, at subway stations by the end of this year.

The service will be extended to all subway stations in the NCR region in early 2020, by deploying up to 25,000 miracles in Yulu.

Our public bicycle sharing (PBS) initiative with Yulu will provide first and last mile connectivity to our users. It is a unique collaboration of its kind to make mobility fluid and sustainable, said DMRC managing director Mangu Singh.

Singh opened the service from the Mandi House subway station. Yulu already runs operations in Bangalore, Mumbai, Pune and Bhubaneswar. MSS RUJ Md
