Hero Electric is trying to prove people that their e-bikes can be used for commuting within city limits. Delhi Government has implemented an odd/even vehicle rule to curb pollution. State officials believe that more people could opt for electric vehicles in the country soon.
The Indian two-wheeler manufacturer is offering its e-bikes to people for free commutes. Hero Electric has deployed over 100 e-bikes in Delhi for effortless transportation. Commuters will also experience cleaner and non-polluting means of travel.
'Free and Clean Ride' is the name of the new initiative from Hero Electric in Delhi. Present at the flag off from Delhi Secretariat was Satyendra Kumar Jain, Minister of Health and Industry, Delhi. Also, present at the event was Sohinder Gill, CEO Hero Electric.
The e-bikes will be deployed at various locations and roughly five bikes will be available at a single spot. Hero Electric will be offering free rides from most Metro stations in Delhi. E-bikes will be available only between 8 AM to 12 PM and 4 PM to 8 PM.
Riders will be designated for each e-bike and will adorn a uniform as well. Based on initial response Hero Electric could increase its fleet to serve more individuals. Currently, Free and Clean Ride initiative will be tested from January 1 to 15, 2016 in Delhi.
