Peshawar’s BRT project to include bicycle-sharing app

PESHAWAR: The Peshawar’s Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project will include a bicycle-sharing system for commuters, TransPeshawar said on Wednesday.

As per details, TransPeshawar — an urban mobility company owned by the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (KP) government to run the BRT affairs — announced that 360 bicycles will be purchased for this project.

This will enable people to ride bicycles using their fare card on a separate bike-lane, which is being constructed along the whole 28-kilometer corridor.

Travelers will use the “Zu Fare Card” to rent-out and return the bicycle. Both men and women will be able to avail this facility.

All bicycles will have easily adjustable seats which can be adjusted for different heights of riders. To ensure the safety of riders, bicycles will have an automatic LED light and reflectors.

Further to enhance the safety of riders, bicycles will be chain-less and safe pedals will be used.

The company said it will have a distinctive reward system built for the web, mobile, system apps to encourage good behaviour. Customers who take bicycles from relatively full stations or return bicycles to relatively empty stations will be rewarded.

All efforts will be made to manufacture these bicycles via using unique parts and components to discourage theft, the statement added.

Three trucks will also be deployed throughout the system to redistribute cycles where demand is high.

Once customers are registered in the system, they can utilise the Zu Fare card. The terminal bicycle kiosks will also have a facility for customers to view the status of their card.

In addition, passengers can also rent bicycles through a Mobile app. The bicycle sharing system will have bicycle stands at each station and at popular locations along the corridor to facilitate passengers.
