The bicycle sharing scheme launched by Chennai Metro in 4 metro stations has proven to be a major hit, following which CMRL is planning to expand its fleet of bicycles. In an attempt to ensure last mile connectivity to its commuters, CMRL will be adding 50 bicycles to selected metro stations across Chennai.
Currently, there are 45 bicycles at Ekattuthangal, Nehru Park, Anna Nagar tower and Thirumangalam stations. These cycles are available for rent for a refundable deposit of Rs.3000. The bicycles have to be returned to the same station from where they have been rented. Two companies joined CMRL, adding another 75 bicycles which can be rented for free at any of the 9 metro stations.
