Cycle sharing system pilots set up in educational institutions
Anna University to start bicycle sharing system on campus
As an eco friendly initiative, Anna University plans to launch bicycle sharing system on campus and will soon float tenders to select a proper agency for implementing the same. The move is aimed at reducing vehicle traffic and pollution levels at campus along with promoting the healthy habit of cycling among students, staff and visitors.
A survey as to which departments/ areas in the campus are frequently visited so the dockets can be kept at convenient spaces for users is to be done.
After an initial pilot stage, the officials will take a decision on whether the service will be paid or available free of cost.
