Srinagar- As E- Bikes are set to hit the roads of Srinagar city in a few days, a trial run of the E-Bikes was held from Dalgate to Hazratbal on Friday.
Sheikh Yameen Co-founder and Managing Director of Curve Electrics said that they have started the initiative of public sharing E-bikes in Srinagar and a successful trial run was held from Dalgate to Kashmir University on Friday.
Pertinently, E-bikes draw power from a battery which makes commuting significantly easier. The battery driven two wheeler has transformed cycling from a strenuous exercise into a joy ride.
Yameen said the authorities have permitted them to run 200 E-Bikes and in the next few days the E-bikes will be seen plying on the city roads.
“To begin with we will launch 50 E-bikes at 11 docking stations in the city and in a few weeks we will ensure all 200 of them hit city roads” he said.
The docking stations are being set up at Islamia College, Dalgate, Botanical Garden, Nishat, Kashmir University, Illahi Bagh, Soura, TRC, Kothi Bagh, Raj Bagh , Sanat Nagar, Bemina among other places.
He said the E-Bikes are technology driven, GPS enabled and the maximum speed of the E-bike is 25km/hour. These battery driven cycles can run up to 55kms per charge.
“On throttle, it has a speed of 25km/hr but seeing the kind of traffic we have in the city, one can run at 17km/hr on an average,” Yameen said.
“One can avail the commuting facility by showing his or her Aadhar card and phone number for the first time, thereafter they will only have to use their phone number” he said.
Yameen said the customers will be charged 0.90 paise per minute and the Payments have to be made at the docking station in online or offline mode.
“We want to make it a mode of transport and people should use it on a daily basis. It is expected to be a safe ride and it will save time, money, effort & above all environment” Yameen added.
