Bhubaneswar: MoCycle, the Public Bike Sharing (PBS) system operated by Capital Region Urban Transport (CRUT) in Bhubaneswar, will resume operation from Monday, May 18.
Cyclists can avail free ride till June 30.
“As the Covid-19 pandemic rages, cycling is a safe way to maintain our physical and mental health. Citizens can avail unlimited free rides in a day. First 30 minutes of any ride is free. I hope more and more people would take up cycling in their daily life,” CRUT General Manager Dipti Mahapatro said.
Three hundred cycles (Yulu & Yaana) will be available at 50 priority PBS stations across the city to begin with.
“After completion of each ride, we will replace the cycle with a sanitized one. Citizens can check on the app whether a particular bicycle is sanitized or not before using it. In larger public interest, we urge citizens to wear mask and gloves while riding the cycles,” informed Mahapatro.
