US-based ride-hailing platform Uber has presented the Delhi government giving the use of 5,000 bike and taxis to turn first and last-mile connectivity throughout the odd-even scheme to be executed next month, according to references. At present, rules & regulations don’t permit bike-taxis to function in Delhi. According to references, Uber has proposed to the Delhi government offering to extend 5,000 bike-taxis to help ferry one lakh passengers to and from Metro stations all week. The aid is intended to be given for a fee of Rs 5 per ride, they further said.

The company, which operates with Bengaluru-based Ola, has also contributed to re-deploy 2,500 bikes from its food distribution interface (UberEats) to serve as bike-taxis throughout the odd-even scheme that intended to be delivered from November 4-15. Uber did not reply to emailed inquiries on the subject. A Delhi court judge declared a bid was initiated from the cab aggregator but no resolution has been practiced on it as yet. One of the persons aware of the development told bike-sharing provides a huge possibility to unfasten the potential of shared mobility through optimal utilization of current vehicles on the road. The person told Uber, in its assent, has cited data that one out of two UberMOTO trips in Gurugram started or completed at a Metro station, while one in four before-mentioned trips Noida started or finished near to a Metro station. The odd-even scheme has been added as part of a slew of measures to combat the high level of air pollution in Delhi made due to stubble burning in neighboring nations through winters. During the 12-day scheme, transports will play alternately on odd and even dates as per their registration numbers. In the past two practices in January and April in 2016, a fine of Rs 2,000 was forced on violators of the law. In the past, two-wheelers and lady travelers were exempted from the rule.
