‘Trin Trin’ registered riders on the rise

‘Trin Trin’, the first Public Bicycle Sharing System introduced in Mysuru city, has become a huge success and has evoked a good response from bicycle riders.

The registered riders of ‘Trin Trin’ app-enabled bicycle sharing system have increased to 11,119 riders in the city. On an average, the number of rides registered per day is 1,300. In the month of June, the registered riders were 10,000 and the rides were 1,000, a day.

As of now, ‘Trin Trin’ has 52 docking stations in the city. To avail the facility, riders can register at the 12 registration centres in the city at KSRTC Bus Stand, City Bus Stand, Mysuru Railway Station, RTO, Mysuru Zoo, Mysuru Palace, and at 6 centres of Karnataka One Registration Centres at Gokulam, New Sheshadri Iyer road, Ramakrishnanagar, Nazarabad, Krishnamurthypuram and Siddartha Layout.

With the growing demand from ‘Trin Trin’ users to increase the docking stations and  number of bicycles, Green Wheel Ride organisation, which has been given the task of maintenance, has urged the Mysuru City Corporation to increase the docking stations and also the bicycles in its second phase of the project.

Speaking to DH, Manager of Green Wheel Ride Asha Kerakatti informed that as there is a demand to increase the docking stations in the city. We have brought it to the notice of Mysuru City Corporation and discussed it in the meeting. No decision was taken as the election code of conduct was in place,” she said.

Asha also said that the Green Wheel Ride has proposed around 50 docking stations and 400 bicycles in the city in the next phase.

The cycles are properly maintained and the deputed staff of Green Wheel Ride attend to the complaints if there are any technical glitches, she added.

It may be recalled that Trin Trin was launched on June 4 in 2017. Karnataka government started the project through funds from the World Bank under the Global Environment Facility (GEF) Grant.

The project is being executed and implemented by the Directorate of Urban Land Transport and Mysuru City corporation.
