The Chennai Metro Rail has introduced a free bicycle ride scheme for its customers. It has tied up with a private agency to provide 100-hours of bicycle ride free of cost every month. This scheme has been introduced to promote eco-friendly travel in the city.
CMRL management believes that this scheme will reduce dependence on private vehicles and will serve as an economical means for commuting. The free ride is available in four metro stations including in Ekkattuthangal, Nehru Park, Thirumangalam and Anna Nagar Tower.
