Good news for citizens of the No. 1 Smart City, on its foundation day. In order to fulfil its commitment towards facilitating non-motorised transport (NMT), the Temple City has done its ground work for the environment-friendly Public Bicycle Sharing (PBS) system, in which there will be 1,200 cycles and 120 cycle docking stations across the city.
While the city will be divided into four major zones i.e. educational institutions, heritage district, central business district and residential colonies, BDA, BMC and Bhubaneswar Smart City Limited (BSCL) will implement the cycle sharing project and World Resource Institute (WRI) and Bhubaneswar Urban Knowledge Centre will be knowledge partners for the same to make the city more greener and less burdened with carbon emissions.
