the emirates announces free bicycles for 45 minutes

ahmed atef - | Arab News

The Roads and Transport Authority in Dubai is putting into action a number of initiatives with the goal of persuading individuals to utilize modes of transport that are less harmful to the environment. Today, thanks to a cooperation with "Karim Bike," it is possible for individuals to ride one of the free bicycles provided by "Karim Bike" stations located all throughout Dubai for a period of up to 45 minutes without incurring any costs.

The initiative is a component of the celebration of World Environment Day, which takes place on June 5 of each year; however, the date for the implementation of the initiative has been established for June 10, in order to allow the greatest number of members of the general public to take part in the effort.

More than 14 years ago, the authority started putting environmentally friendly projects into action when it switched to using diesel in all of the public buses, which at the time was considered to be one of the environmentally friendly fuels. In 2009, modern buses were equipped with EuroIV engines, which use environmentally friendly fuel, and the authority also switched to using diesel in all of its buses. In comparison, standard fuel, which is what most other trucks and buses run on, has a sulphur content of 550 parts per million, whereas this alternative fuel only has 50 parts per million of sulphur in it.

The authority is also responsible for equipping public transport buses with the appropriate technologies to lower noise levels. These technologies are in accordance with the regulations imposed on the environment. These technologies include the technology of recycling gases that are emitted, as well as the implementation of emission standards known as Euro 4 and Euro 5.

The year 2009 marked the beginning of operations for the Dubai Metro, which uses electric propulsion and helped bring about a reduction in the amount of pollution released into the air. It also played a significant part in expanding the number of people who utilise public transit, which is one of the most essential components that must be present in order to implement transportation solutions that are less harmful to the environment.

By selecting "BIKE" inside the "GO" area on the main screen of the "Careem" application, users are now able to take advantage of the free bicycle journeys that are now available through the "Careem" programme. According to the authority.

In addition to encouraging social groups to adopt healthy practises and raising their awareness of the importance of relying on flexible means of transport during leisure time and exercise, the authority emphasised that this type of initiative helps to reduce carbon emissions and promotes the concept of sustainable and environmentally friendly mobility.
