As urbanization and modernization is reaching new heights every day, pollution level, road congestion have become a modern day menace. There is a need to address these issues in an environmentally friendly manner and we foresee bi-cycle sharing system as the apt solution to it. Cycle sharing system can be the prodigy project by Chennai Smart City Ltd. This system will be backed by technology that will make it a citizen-friendly project.
GCC will be assigning the cycle sharing slots to service providers at several places, who will house the dockless cycles. Cycle stations will be installed at areas where citizens visit more often. These dockless bicycles will also have a definite parking slot at their chosen place. So far 378 cycle parking slots have been identified and a total of 4976 bicycle have been considered in the feasibility study, the service provider is liable to increase the parking slots.
