Srinagar: E-bikes for public sharing will soon hit Srinagar city of Jammu and Kashmir, media reports said on Sunday.

Sheikh Yamin, Co-founder and Managing Director of Curve Electrics, told Kashmir Reader that they have started the initiative of public sharing E-bikes in Srinagar and trial run was held from Dalgate to Kashmir University on Friday.

“50 E-bikes will be available in city at 11 docking stations and the main aim to start this venture is to get rid of traffic congestion and play a part in reducing the pollution levels in the city. As per our estimate, we will be able to stop emission of 750 metric tonne carbon in one year,” he told the news portal.

Sheikh added that docking stations include Nehru Park, Dalgate, Botanical Garden, Kashmir University, Nishat, Habak, Elahi Bagh, Islamia College, Sanat Nagar Chowk, Bemina and Lal Chowk.

The charges are just 90 paisa per minute for riding the bike, he said.

“Anyone who wants to avail the service can come to the docking station and register with our docking executive by providing an identity card, phone number and name, at the first time,” he told Kashmir Reader.

“We have designed these E-bikes ourselves and also assembled them here. They can run for 60 kilometres on a single charge,” he said.

He said the bikes will be GPS enabled and fitted with an anti-tampering system.
