Delhi Metro launches e-rick service for NCR stations

Seeking to provide last-mile connectivity in cities neighbouring the national capital, DMRC

 launched a dedicated e-rickshaw service for the commuters, beginning at the Vaishali station in Ghaziabad.

"The specially designed e-rickshaws with covered cabin and full-size front windscreen will provide last-mile connectivity within an area of 3-4 km around metro stations.

They are also equipped with CCTV camera and GPS," a senior official said.

The eco-friendly service was formally launched by Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) MD Mangu Singh at the Metro Bhawan here on the occasion of World Environment Day.

"The first fleet of five e-rickshaws inaugurated today will operate from Vaishali Metro Station. The facility will be extended at stations in Gurgaon and Faridabad very shortly by another operator," the senior official said.

One of the operators aims to introduce 610 e-rickshaws at earmarked eight operational metro stations in Noida and Ghaziabad within a year, DMRC said.

"On successful implementation of the e-rickshaw services in the NCR, services on a similar format would be replicated in Delhi subject to its feasibility," the official said.
