Views: 299

The Chandigarh Smart City Limited (CSCL) is planning to introduce public bicycle sharing system for 600 busy points in the city. CSCL has called for tenders for buying 10,000 bicycles.

These GPRS installed bicycles will be monitored through a control room. In the first phase, bicycle sharing points would be introduced at Sector 17 plaza, Panjab University, Sukhna Lake, Rose Garden, PGI, bus stand, among other busy places of the city.

“This scheme will certainly reduce the motor vehicular movement in the city and help in reducing pollution level. Instead of opting for a taxi or a bus, one can take a bicycle from one point and drop it on the next point, nearest to their destination,” a senior official of CSCL said in conversation with the Hindustan Times.

As per the terms and conditions, only those companies will be eligible to apply for this system who have a prior experience for setting up and operating at least one such bicycle sharing system with 500 bicycles for a minimum of three years. The conditions also state that business should presently be in operation and have a current annual turnover equivalent to Rs 20 crore or more. Last date for applying for this tender is February 22.
