To promote clean environment and alternative mode of transportation, Jaipur is  all set to introduce public bicycle sharing system titled ‘Cyclo’.

Jaipur Smart City Limited (JSCL) will initially start this scheme at two locations and then will extend it to 20 locations. The initiative is part of JSML’s smart mobility project to promote new mode of transport in the city. The total cost of the project is around Rs 1.10 crore.

“ Initially, the scheme will be launched from Jawahar Circle and Ram Niwas Bagh and more locations will be added in a phased manner,” said Ravi Jain, Jaipur Municipal Commissioner.

Under the scheme, citizens can rent a bicycle and return it to another docking station in the city. The minimum rent is Rs 10 per hour. Users who want to use bicycles have to furnish an identity card and fill out a form, which is available on every docking system.

A Delhi-based firm Greenolution, operating a similar project in the national capital, is implementing this project.

“The design of the bicycles would be trendy to motivate people to use them. The users will have the option of making payments in cash, credit card or the common mobility card,” an official said.

A similar scheme has been implemented in Mysore.

Apart from the two locations, other proposed locations for cycle stations include Rajasthan University, Trimurti Circle, Central Park, New Gate, State Assembly, Jaipur Municipal Corporation office, Moti Doongari, Janta Store, Narayan Singh Circle, Govind Marg, Rajapark, SMS Hospital, Vivekanand Marg, C-Scheme, Ajmeri Gate, Panch Batti, Government Hostel, and Albert Hall.
