“Pune: Smart City” is what everyone is discussing nowadays. There are many projects taken under the scheme of Smart city initiative.
PCMC area of city has taken under the Smart city initiative of Central government. One of the initiatives taken by the Municipal Corporation is that you can now share the bicycles that too at minimal cost. An agreement would be created between the bicycle sponsoring companies and the Smart City Co. Ltd. In the first lot, the route would be from Pimple Saudager to Wakad which would have 45 bicycle stands. As per the officials, 200 cycles would be made available under this initiative. Bicycle providers have to look into different matters such as to make bicycles available across decided stands, availability of app for sharing bicycles and bicycles with all modern facilities, resolving complaints of citizens if any etc.
This initiative if worked out properly would definitely help to reduce air pollution and problem of parking can be resolved up to some extent. So people get ready to ride a bicycle and achieve your fitness goals too!!
