A Yulu Bike zone was inaugurated at our Equinox campus in Mumbai. The campus now has more than 30 Yulu Miracle electric bikes stationed in the premises for accessible, affordable and green mobility.
The world around us is moving to better, cleaner and greener modes of transport to help reduce air pollution. India is also doing the same, thanks to Yulu, a leading mobile application-based electric bike platform for first- and last-mile, short-distance commutes. And now, riding an e-bike in Mumbai has never been easier as Yulu, in partnership with the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), has started operations in the city. Yulu bikes are available to commuters at nine different zones or docking stations in and around Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC), including our Equinox campus.
The Yulu Bike zone at Equinox was inaugurated on August 31 in the presence of key officials and Vithal Suryavanshi, Regional Head – West India, Brookfield Properties. The campus is now equipped with more than 30 Yulu Miracle bikes for easy pick-up and drop. Yulu Miracle is a battery-operated two-wheeler that produces no pollution.
Yulu is on a mission to build the largest electric vehicle (EV) ecosystem in the country and is committed to providing safe, smart and non-motorised transport solutions. This association with Yulu has further strengthened Brookfield Properties commitment towards environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles and offering last-mile connectivity via sustainable and accessible mobility options to its occupants.
Speaking on the inauguration, Alok Aggarwal, MD & CEO, India Office Business, Brookfield Properties, says, “ESG management is core to how we conduct our business across the globe. We are excited to add this green mobility service with Yulu bikes to our campus. This association will further strengthen our agenda of providing best-in-class and environmentally friendly mobility solution to the new-age professionals working at Equinox. We encourage our tenants and employees to use the e-bike service and ensure they follow all safety protocols while doing so.”
To use the e-bike service, commuters are required to download the Yulu app on their smartphones and register themselves. Once they find a Yulu Bike zone, they can unlock the bike for Rs 5.
They will be charged Rs 1.5 for every minute of the ride thereon. What’s more, all Yulu bikes are completely safe for use, as they are sanitised several times in a day using a sanitiser recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO). The timestamp of the last sanitisation carried out on a bike is visible to users on the Yulu app.
If you are looking for a smart, safe and easy mobility option or want to avoid parking woes during peak hours in a business hub like BKC, riding a Yulu bike is a great idea. People working at Equinox are already taking advantage of this facility and making cycling to and from work a pleasant experience for themselves.
