    In an effort to offer efficient last-mile connectivity to commuters, the Delhi Metro rail Corporation (DMRC) has allowed e-scooter renting services at four of its stations. Electric scooters or e-scooters renting facility is at present available at Vishwavidyalaya, Mandi House, Dwarka Sector 9 and Nehru Enclave metro stations. "To offer efficient last-mile connectivity to commuters, DMRC has authorised e-scooters renting services at 4 stations, namely Vishwavidyalaya, Mandi House, Dwarka Sector 9 and Nehru Enclave," DMRC tweeted.

    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.

    Eco-friendly and cost-effective, battery-operated bicycle-sharing services are currently operational at 7 metro stations and pedal bicycle-sharing services are available at 19 stations.

    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.
