The DMRC tries to incorporate eco-friendly initiatives in all its spheres of functioning”.

The e-bicycle service at the two stations is provided by BycyShare Technologies Pvt. Ltd. and one can avail of the facility by downloading an app, Mobycy Zypp, and doing one-time registration.

The DMRC, in association with private firms, is also operating 22 bicycle sharing service stands covering 20 stations.
