Jamia Metro station gets e-rickshaws for last mile connectivity, know the fares
To increase last mile connectivity for Metro commuters, the DMRC has flagged off a fleet of 25 e-rickshaws, called ETO from Jamia Millia Islamia Metro station of Magenta Line.
These e-rickshaws will be plying from 6 am to 11 pm daily providing last mile connectivity to nearby localities like, Batla House, Gaffar Manzil, Okhla Vihar, Zakir Nagar, Haji Colony and Noor Nagar etc.
The fares have been kept very nominal at a base price of Rs 10 for first 2 kms and Rs 5 for subsequent km. The commuters can also book vehicles through the ETO app and pay digitally for their rides.
A charging station for these electric vehicles has also been set up to ensure seamless service throughout the day.
Initially, 25 ETO rickshaws are being introduced into service from the station which will be increased to 50 in next few days covering two more stations of this line- Sukhdev Vihar and Jasola Vihar Shaheen Bagh.
These GPS enabled ETOs are specially designed having a covered cabin and full front windscreen to provide last mile connectivity within an area of 3-4 KM around Metro stations.
Currently, over 300 e-rickshaws are already providing last mile connectivity service from 36 Metro stations spread across the network. The DMRC will be further introducing e-rickshaw services from 15 more Metro stations by the end of next month.
