New Delhi [India], Dec 21 (ANI): Zoomcar on Thursday announced the launch of its eco-friendly cycle sharing service PEDL in Mumbai at the privately developed smart city of Palava.

Greg Moran, CEO and co-founder, Zoomcar said that Mumbai is the fifth city where PEDL has been launched following Pune, Chennai, Kolkata and Bengaluru and emphasized that all amenities are available at short distances in Palava City making it an ideal place for PEDL.

"We also plan to build the cycling community in Palava through multiple events and partnerships with local businesses across Palava and surroundings to incentivize people to use cycles and make cycling popular. Over the next few months, we truly believe we can completely change the last mile commute within cities reducing the usage of bikes and cars for short trips," Moran added.

PEDL has about 200 cycles in Palava across 30 locations and is expects to hit around 1000 cycles in next one month in different parts of Mumbai.

PEDL is designed to complement Zoomcar's existing car sharing business and Palava, which is developed by the Lodha Group would be able to provide its residents a convenient, healthy and environment friendly option for short travels around the city.

"The partnership with PEDL echoes well with our aim to build a sustainable smart city by improving short distance commute, reducing the carbon footprint of the city and ultimately inculcating a hassle-free lifestyle for the residents of Palava," Shaishav Dharia, Regional CEO, Lodha Group said. (ANI)
