Imagine traveling through the clogged narrow lanes of old Delhi or visiting other famous places with your companion. On a bike taxi! Yes, just like you can rent bikes in the state of Goa, soon you might have the option to rent bikes on your next trip to Delhi.
In order to attract and increase the convenience for tourists in and around the national capital, the Delhi government has announced the launch of a rented motorcycle scheme.Delhi Transport Department lately has permitted the idea of Bike on Rental facility in the capital. The services could be launched by the end of this month or the beginning of next month.
Person wanting to start would have a flotilla of five bikes minimum to be lent along with office space of 150 square feet as evidence and to twitch this business. These bikes would be registered on a commercial note and be granted a contract carriage authorization too.
These bikes would be available at metro stations, tourist spots, railway stations etc. This policy has been in effect for a long time in Goa , helping in last mile connectivity for tourists in a hassle free and economic way. The Delhi Government believes this will boost the tourism in the national capital, which we totally agree. Hope other cities and states follow in the footsteps and change their respective policies soon.
