These e-scooters, provided by qQuick, are in addition to the bicycle sharing and e-rickshaw facility available at some of the metro stations to offer last mile connectivity to commuters.
Vishwavidyalaya is situated on the Yellow Line, while Dwarka Sector 9 and Mandi House are located on the Blue Line. Nehru Enclave is on the Magenta Line.

The DMRC has been taking various steps to strengthen last-mile connectivity. It has also tied up with bike-sharing app Yulu for last-mile connectivity. The company has launched services from Dilli Haat (INA) to JLN Stadium in central Delhi in collaboration with the DMRC to cater to first and last-mile connectivity for commuters and to reduce congestion and pollution in the city.
Currently, the Delhi Metro spans nearly 350 km, having over 250 metro stations and nine colour-coded lines.
