Months after the Karnataka state government implemented the public bicycle sharing scheme called 'trin trin', the scheme will now be extended to Bengaluru. 

According to reports, the cabinet, on Wednesday, approved the scheme. 6000 cycles will be  made available at eight different locations in the city, including MG Road and Indiranagar. The other areas in which the project will be implemented are Koramangala, Banaswadi, HRBR Layout, HBR Layout, HSR Layout and Kacharakanahalli. The cabinet has reportedly allotted Rs 80.18 crore to implement the project. 

“The cabinet has given its green signal for implementing the project at an estimated cost of Rs 80.18 crore. Around 6,000 bicycles will be made available for the users," law minister TB Jayachandra was quoted as saying.

 'Trin trin' project was first launched in the city of Mysuru on a trial basis with 450 bicycles and was inaugurated by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah in June this year. The project was launched as a eco-friendly mode of transport. With 48 docking stations, renting the cycle for the first hour is free in Mysuru, Rs 5 is charged for two hours and so on.
