To ensure that commuters are able to travel to and from the Metro station to their homes or places of work in an enviroment friendly and healthy manner, MMRDA has tied up with a company called Mybyk to provide bicycles for rent outside the Metro stations.
Not only that, they have even painted a yellow lane for use by cyclists!

These bikes are smart pedal bikes, with an app-based locking and unlocking facility. Commuters can take it for rent at a nominal cost.
These bicycles will definitely help in many ways to improve Mumbai.
They will improve the health of the user, especially their cardiovascular fitness.
They will be zero carbon-emitting modes of transport, and thus are beneficial for the environment.
Wishing all commuters a very healthy and happy ride.
