Cycles on rent by Ola Pedal

Ola, the Bengaluru-based ride-hailing service company, on Friday said it will roll out bicycle services on various campuses on a pilot basis as part of its green initiative.

According to company sources, the service will cover short distances.

"Ola Pedal service is a quick, green and smart way to cover short distances. It will help in a city like Benglauru," said an official.

"With superior technology and an option to book it on the same Ola app, Ola Pedal will go a long way in solving pollution and congestion in our cities," states the company.

Recently, the company started piloting a cycle rental service at IIT Kanpur through its app.

In IIT Kanpur, students were able to rent cycles, just as they book a cab. The company made around 600 cycles available on spots around the campus. The users can park their bicycles after use at Ola parking stations.

For the trial period, Ola's cycles were made available at IIT Kanpur free for the first 30 minutes. The user was charged Rs 5 for each hour after the 30-minute period.
