NEW DELHI: In a major boost to last-mile connectivity for commuters, the Delhi Metro on Wednesday extended the facility of
services to 12 more stations spread across the rapid transit network, officials said.
With this, the total tally of stations where such facilities are available rises to 29, with an operational fleet of over 1,000 e-rickshaws.
A K Garg, Director (Operations), flagged
off a fleet of around 250 new e-rickshaws from the
, the officials said.
These e-rickshaws will be plying from 12 stations --
, Arjangarh, Nawada,
, Patel Nagar, Nangloi,
Railway Station, Govindpuri, Harkesh Nagar Okhla, Moolchand and Botanical Garden.
"Till date, over 800 e-rickshaws were plying from 17
, facilitating over one lakh passengers to reach destinations or stations daily. With this addition, the number of e-rickshaws has gone beyond 1,000, covering 29 metro stations," the
said in a statement.
Twelve more stations are likely to be added within the next 2-3 months wherein around 500 more e-rickshaws will be put into service, it said.
These GPS-enabled rickshaws called 'SmartEs', having covered cabin and full-front windscreen, will provide last-mile connectivity within a radius 3-4 km from the metro stations.
The fares have been kept nominal at a base price of Rs 10 for the first 2 km and Rs 5 for every subsequent kilometre. The commuters can also book the vehicles through the SmartE app and pay digitally for their rides, the officials said.
In the recent years, the DMRC has introduced many eco-friendly initiatives to ensure a robust last-mile connectivity system.
