  • Mysore is the second

    Mysore District is a popular

    tourist destination, and

    famous for Dasara Festival

    Mofussil bus services

  • Mysore is fast falling victim to the trend of motorization i.e. the

    increasing use of personal cars and two wheelers.

    The city attracts about 4 Million tourists in a year. 70 % of

    which is at dhussera period

    Mysore is a major Educational hub.

    The heritage core of Mysore is located near to the CBD. High

    density vehicular traffic in the area hampers the aesthetic of

    heritage sites and reduces marketability towards tourists. As all

    sites are close to each other, bicycles are the best way to

    commute in congested areas and are environmentally safe for

    the heritage sites.

  • •The Public Bike Sharing will help to retain and

    improve the aesthetic and overall charm of Mysore

    as tourist destination by providing environment

    friendly and healthier way to commute.

    •The proposal has been linked to public transport

    and tourist destinations.

    •PBS system will not only benefit general public but

    also tourists and students as potential users.

    Creation of a Bicycle network and Public bicycle

    sharing system in the city will definitely benefit and

    encourage NMT users.

    CTTP Mysore recommends 126 Kms of cycle tracks in Mysore.

    Docking station design

    Total 52 feasible cycle docking

    stations (12 Major and 40 minor

    ports) has been identified and

    recommended for Mysore PBS.

  • The total capital cost of 350 bicycle PBS scheme is estimated at

    Rs 565.73Lakhs.

    Capital Costs

  • Operating costs

  • Operating revenue

  • Some of the options to meet these shortfalls are:

    1. Provide additional advertisement boards in the city help in meeting shortfalls

    in the running costs, the capital cost will still be difficult to meet.

    2. Development of a commercial complex (with the control centre ) to provide a

    stream of lease revenue to the bike share scheme. However, again shortfall of

    the capital cost and running cost.

    3. The third option is to obtain a Grant for the capital cost (5.6 Crores). A

    loan/debt is not advisable as the negative cash flows would be further

    burdened by loan repayment requirements. The Grant in any case does not

    still answer the operating shortfalls.

    4. The alternative of a larger Grant (16.0 Crore Rupee Grant can support the

    system for 5 years ) to support the Capital and operations for a period has

    been considered. Any revenue received in the first five years is set to a corpus.

    This will then provide revenue by way of interests to the recurring revenue

    incomes which then can meet the PBS needs for a comfortable future.

  • Cash Flow Statement

    The 4th alternative in the financing options will be able to meet

    cash flows and the PBS in Mysore will run successfully.

    Recommended Financial Plan

  • • UMTA has been set up in Mysore with representation from all stakeholders and with Commissioner, Directorate of Urban Land Transport as the Chairman.

    • A District Urban development cell(DUDC) will function as the Project Implementation Unit (PIU).

    • A project implementation committee would be set up in UMTA under the Deputy Commissioner with relevant stakeholders to manage the PBS.

  • Conclusions

    1. The PBS cannot work as a stand-alone project on

    advertising alone and will need a seed capital of

    Rs.16 Crores to generate a corpus which will help in

    sustaining the project.

    2. The additional cost for road improvements

    (Footpaths, Median, Signages, road markings) has

    been estimated for 52 locations as Rs.7.8 Crores.

    3. Unified Metropolitan Transport Authority (UMTA) in

    Mysore will take the lead role in implementing this


  • Observations

    1. Maintenance costs of Geared Cycle vis a vis Non

    Geared Cycles:

    1. The experience based on the information available is

    1. The maintenance costs of the imported bicycles (Rs 20000/-) is

    around Rs 9000/- per annum.

    2. The maintenance costs of locally manufactured geared cycle (Rs

    20000/-) is Rs 5000/- per annum.

    3. The maintenance cost of a locally manufactured cycle (Rs 8000/-)

    is Rs 2500/- per annum

    2. The PBS system in China does not use geared cycles,

    whereas those in Europe use a 3 geared, encased in

    hub cycles.

  • Districr Urban Development Cell
