Mr Vineet Nayyar, Vice Chairman of Tech Mahindra launched the Last Mile Connect which is a unique eco friendly facility for students to travel by cycles for free.
The service will facilitate commuters to travel short distances by cycles and save on traffic congestion and pollution. It will serve as a feeder to Delhi Metro and establish bicycles as a last mile connectivity tool.
Initially, the cycle stations will be installed at two locations- Delhi University Metro Station and Ramjas College. Temporary smart cards will be issued on the spot to commuters who wish to use the service for a single day after mobile number verification and deposit of ID Proof in original. Commuters can use the cycles as per their convenience with a pick and drop facility. At the end of journey the students will get original ID proof back against surrender of smart card from the source station.
This Service will be available from 8 AM to 8 PM, Monday to Saturday and the last cycle will be issued at 7.30 PM.
