Bhubaneswar, Nov 04: Good news for residents of Bhubaneswar, as they will ride the e-rickshaw now, while the charges of auto and private bus services are comparatively high in the state capital.
The e-rickshaw service will be available at SCB Medical College and Hospital, Cuttack and Nandankanan Zoo after the state government gives a nod.
The demand will be high for the e-rickshaw service as it do not need diesel, petrol, LPG or CNG and will run with a speed of 25 kmph.
The battery-operated, four-seater rickshaws are zero emission means of transport. There is no clutch or gear attached to it. It will be more safer than other means of communication such as auto and bus.
