The first set of smart cycles that commuters can use for ‘last mile connectivity’ are already in place at the Miyapur metro station. The smart bike station has been set up on the pathway between the HMR Pylon and the lift.
“A Smartbike Station has been set up at the place. It is on the pathway between the HMR Pylon and the lift,” D V Manohar, chairman of Hyderabad Cycling Club told TOI. “Services will begin next week when we set up the Smartbike Stations at a few more places,” he said.
HMR will operate bicycles in association with different organisations to promote eco-friendly, cost effective transportation and to ensure last mile connectivity. Promoting eco-friendly modes of transportation, a couple of companies are launching cycling service at few metros in the city. Cykul, one of the leading cycling technology company, is launching bicycles service at a few Metro stations from Wednesday.
Similarly, Hyderabad Bicycling Club promoted SmartBike Mobility Private Limited will be launching the cycling service in about 10 days. The geared smart bikes will be made available to those who take membership of the Hyderabad Cycling Club. The idea is to discourage use of motorized transport to get to the Metro stations and in turn reduce pollution.

Continuing its operations, Cykul is now extending its service to Metro passengers in the city. The company has won the contract to operate its cycles at Miyapur, KPHB, Nagole, Uppal stadium and Habsiguda Metro stations.
