Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has authorised e-scooters renting services at four metro stations to offer efficient last-mile connectivity to commuters. The e-scooter renting services are now available at Vishwavidyalaya, Mandi House, Dwarka Sector 9 and Nehru Enclave metro stations.

The e-scooters or electric scooters, provided by qQuick, are an addition to the existing bicycle sharing system to empower the last mile connectivity for metro commuters.

Metro commuters can now rent the e-scooter, ride and return the two-wheeler. The e-scooters will be available outside the above mentioned stations.

DMRC already provides cycle-sharing services at 19 metro stations and it plans to extend the services across its network.

According to reports, the e-scooters will have GPS installed to determine the total kilometers travelled. Users renting e-scooters will have to submit their valid identity proof with the operators before they are allowed to ride one. The reports also mention that the e-scooters will be slightly more expensive than bicycles as users will have to pay Rs 1 per kilometre.

The news of embracing electric vehicles first made news in May when DMRC announced that it is planning to bring in electric scooters at five of its stations in the NCR region.

With e-scooters, DMRC joins the country's push towards cleaner mobility and brings in the EV culture in India with greater force.
