Micro mobility service provider Yulu, on Monday, extended its electric bike operations in Delhi.
Yulu has deployed a fleet of 250 battery-powered e-bikes, named Yulu Miracle, to redefine Micro Mobility in the capital city.
"Delhi is a megacity with extreme weather conditions. But considering that we have run Yulu Miracle for the past six months in Bengaluru and Navi Mumbai, we were reasonably confident of our business and the EV understanding of launching it here too," Amit Gupta, co-founder, Yulu, told.
"By December this year, we plan to have close to 5,000 Yulu Miracles across Delhi-NCR. The service will be further extended to all the metro stations by deploying up to 25,000 scooters by H2 of 2020," Gupta added.
In its first phase, Yulu services will be available at 40 Yulu Zones (pick up and drop points) around 9 metro stations from Dilli Haat INA to JLN Stadium on the Blue and Yellow Line.
The light-weight scooter was launched in partnership with DMRC at the Mandi House metro station.
Focusing on creating sustainable mobility for urban India, Yulu Miracle is a dock-less, lithium battery-powered scooter made with the aim of easing traffic congestion and helping fellow citizens with the smart and sustainable ride solution. It requires no vehicle registration, helmets or driving licenses.
The event took place in the presence of Mangu Singh, MD, DMRC.
"Our Public Bike Sharing (PBS) initiative with Yulu will provide the much needed first and last-mile connectivity to our users. It is one-of-its-kind collaboration to make mobility seamless and sustainable," said Singh.
Explaining the usage of the e-bikes, Yulu co-founder Hemant Gupta said, "Users are required to download the Yulu app and scan the QR code to access a scooter. The in-app map then shows different Yulu Zones. The users can access/park the scooter there and also lock and unlock the vehicle using the app."
"Each Yulu Miracle has GPS installed, so our operation team is well aware of its location details and battery status," he added.
