To the point:
Good news to all the cycling enthusiasts in the city. You can now carry your foldable bicycle with you on the metro and board the train with it.
Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited has ordered its officials and guards to let through the people carrying foldable bicycles as long as they pass through the baggage counter. This step has been taken to encourage the use of public transport and bicycles. BMRCL has also provided space to park bicycles and has provided YULU rental bicycles at the metro stations, a great initiative we think.Â
BMRCL advises people boarding the trains with foldable bicycles to use the last compartment which is wheelchair-friendly. However, regular bicycles will not be allowed because they occupy too much space. Time to invest in a foldable bicycle, what say?Â
