Inauguration of the trial run of E-Rickshaws inside IISc Campus, near main building @ 10 am

Location: Near Main Building

Dear all,

Due to surge in the number of motorized vehicles’ movement in IISc campus and increase in number of accidents, IISc has been taking initiatives to encourage alternate greener modes of transport inside campus like PEDL smart cycle sharing system. In continuation of these efforts, Institute intends to explore possibility of introducing E-Rickshaw services in near future for in-campus movement of IISc community and visitors.

In this regard, a trial run with three E-rickshaw vehicles has been planned for 3-days during 8th March to 10th March 2018, on three identified routes in the campus. Director, IISc will formally inaugurate the trail run of E-Rickshaws near main building at 10 am on 8th March 2018. During the trial period, one e-rickshaw each (capacity: 4 passengers) will run on each route with an expected frequency of 30-35 minutes from 10:30 am to 6 pm on 8th March and from 9:00 am to 6 pm on 9th and 10th March 2018, with a break of 45 minutes in-between during 1:30 pm to 2:15 pm on each day. The E-Rickshaw service during this 3-day trial period will be provided free of cost with boarding and alighting on any point on these three routes. Details of the three routes are provided in the link below:

To understand the potential and need for regular E-Rickshaw service in the campus and to ensure its sustained success in the campus, we are doing a small user feedback survey. All are requested to provide their valuable feedback using the online survey form given on the link below:

Note: The aim of the survey is to seek an effective feedback for the future provision of E-Rickshaw inside the campus based on the three-day (8th, 9th, 10th of March, 2018) trial run.

We encourage all of you to take advantage of this trial service and take part in making our campus even more green and safe.
