He will have to return the bicycle within a timeframe," he added.

In three months, the plan is to set up a station every 500 meters. "We want to ensure that people can make use of the facility and not depend on polluting modes of transport. By providing the much-needed last-mile connectivity, we can reduce the dependency on private transports," Ramesh said.
