While we wait for things to move to the next stage with Bangalore University, the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore has shown interest in providing space for the University bicycle sharing experiment.
Indian Institute of Science has a lovely green campus spread over 400 acres which makes it ideal for cycling. It is not surprising that 60% of the people in the campus use about 1200 cycles already. However, there is a need for a well maintained bicycle sharing system which could make cycling probably the only means of transport that may be required within IISc.
Ride A Cycle Foundation (RAC-F) and the Namma Cycle team are proud and excited to partner with CiSTUP to bring Namma Cycle to IISc.
The Namma Cycle team met with the chairman of CiSTUP, Prof. Sitharam who has extended full support for this initiative from RAC-F.
Once the experiment becomes successful, we are keen to implement the tested and improved system at the Bangalore University Jnanabharati campus where the University Bicycle sharing system was first planned to be implemented.
