The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has taken a big step with the aim of ending long lines, jams etc. of the battery rickshaw, Gramin Sewa etc. outside metro stations. DMRC is planning to introduce e-rickshaws in the coming days to improve last mile connectivity. At present, this service has started in Gurgaon, Faridabad and Vaishali metro stations. This will also be done at the stations of the Delhi capital. Now in Delhi, Metro is running its e-rickshaw in Dwarka.
Root will be fixed
DMRC officials said that the routes will be fixed to run e-rickshaws. They will not run side by side with the Metro, they will not be used for transport people from one metro station to another station. With the help of these, the people living in the nearby metro stations can get benefited. Especially at a place where feeder buses do not reach due to the narrow paths.
Briefing the plan, a DMRC official said,
We are planning to rope in private aggregators for all stations in our network in Delhi, except for stations where plying of e-rickshaws are prohibited on the adjacent or nearby roads. These e-rickshaws will operate on fixed routes and not run parallel to metro corridors or on main roads. The e-rickshaws will only provide connectivity between metro stations and nearby catchment areas, where other vehicles such as feeder buses may not be available for last mile connectivity.
Officials said that the e-rickshaw Metro station will go up to 3-4 km. The fare for initial two kilometers will be 10 rupees. After this, Rs 5 will be charged per kilometer. There will be no more than four rides in an e-rickshaw. Parking and charging facilities will be provided at the stations only. In the coming days, the payment will be done only with the Metro Card. These e-rickshaws will also have modern facilities like GPS.
