Delhi's every day degrading air has placed the national capital among the most polluted cities globally. A recent report by the environment think tank, Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) claimed that the city will need to cut its pollution levels by 65 per cent to meet the air standards.

Despite the ongoing efforts to control pollution that has lowered the high PM2.5 levels, it will take combined efforts from all stakeholders of India's economy to meet clean air quality standards. In an effort to promote eco-friendly commute options in Delhi-NCR, Bengaluru-based micro-mobility provider, Yulu bikes has launched operations in Delhi.

First & Last Mile Connectivity

The Mobility as a Service (MaaS) startup has entered a collaboration with Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC). Yulu services will be available at around 9 metro stations in Delhi including Mandi House, Dilli Haat, Jahawarlal Nehru stadium and Rajiv Chowk among others.
