For all of those who have been planning to add cycling as a part of their daily schedule, here is some news for you. Delhi Development Authority is all set to come up with a plan that is going to make cycling in Delhi an easier experience. Delhi is all set to get the biggest public cycle sharing system in Dwarka, and it is going to have 5,500 and over 300 cycle stands.
What Is It?
The Delhi Development Authority has proposed a plan for a Public Cycle Sharing System in Dwarka. Within the coming week DDA will file a tender to engage a private firm to provide the cycles as well as manage the public transportation system.
The entire plan will be implemented in two phases. The first phase will include the introduction of 2,500 cycles and over 300 cycle stands, while the second phase will see the introduction of 3,000 cycles more. 100 km of tracks will also be created for a smoother operation of these cycles.
To ensure a systematic running of the program, a mobile app will also be created by the appointed private operator to allow users to register themselves. With the app, the users will receive an OTP that can be used for unlocking the cycles.

Although DDA has yet not finalised the cost of using these public cycles, the initial workings of the plan are running smoothly and is expected to run operations soon.
Very soon, the roads in Delhi will see an upsurge in the number of cycles running which will not only help with Delhi’s traffic situation but also be a healthy workout alternative for Delhiites.
