Chief Minister of Karnataka Siddaramaiah has recently launched India’s first public bicycle sharing (PBS) initiative ‘Trin Trin’ in Mysuru. A short video detailing various aspects of Trin Trin and a mobile app were also released on the occasion. The World Bank, Global Environmental Fund, and state govt have jointly funded the initiative.
Mysuru is the first city in India to have a public bicycle sharing system. A total of 450 bicycles can be borrowed from 48 docking stations set up across the City for a nominal fee. The users, however, have to be registered as members by paying Rs 350 that also includes a refundable deposit and obtain a smart card by swiping which they can take out a bicycle from the docking station.
