New Delhi: After the success of its e-rickshaw service in Noida & Ghaziabad, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) is planning to extend the service to commuters in the national capital.
The service will have high-tech e-rickshaws fitted with CCTV cameras & GPS to ensure added safety for passengers, especially women commuters.
The e-rickshaw service will be allowed to cover a radius of approx 4 km around Metro stations & are designed differently in style than the usual ones that are plying on city roads.
The proposal for this was in June put up before lieutenant governor Anil Baijal, who asked other stakeholders to study the feasibility of the service.
An official said,“We hope the service will help mitigate the mushrooming of unorganised transport mediums such as e-rickshaws and Gramin Sewa services in Delhi-NCR, which not only block the entry-exit points of Metro stations, but also create pollution.”
