Two Bike Sharing Systems Open in Mumbai

Mumbai has instituted two citywide bike sharing programs. The City Fix takes an inside look.

"Two bicycle-sharing programs have just been launched in the northern part of the peninsula – Cycle Chalao and FreMo. Their stories are very different – the former was started by a group of students, the latter by a former financial CEO – but they're both after the same goals: fighting climate change, improving mobility and making Mumbai a better place to live."

Cycle Chalao is starting out with 30 bikes and is located near a rail station. It's expected to be used primarily by students commuting to a nearby school. FreMo has five separate stations and about 100 bikes.
