By Hamid Khan Wazir
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Vice-Chancellor Quaid-i-Azam University (QAU) Islamabad Dr. Muhammad Ali launched ezBike, Pakistan’s first electric bike-sharing service for the students of the university.
The ezBike Service has been introduced in facilitation by the QAU Alumni Association which has already undertaken a number of initiatives to facilitate QAU students at the campus.
With the launch of this facility, the Quaid-i-Azam University has become the first Pakistani university where students and staff will use electric bikes to move from Ona place to another within the campus.
Speaking on the occasion, the Vice-Chancellor QAU Dr. Muhammad Ali appreciated the initiative and hoped that the students and the university staff would take benefit from this cheap and environment-friendly bike for traveling within the campus.
The CEO Roamer Pakistan briefed that these easy-to-use electric bikes are already at high demand across Islamabad and made available for use by the general public. Users reserve, unlock, and pay for their rides using the ezBike app and then drive themselves to their destinations.
He informed that ezBike is the cheapest, most convenient, most environmentally-friendly, and most women-empowering form of shared mobility in Pakistan.
Moreover, it is the only socially-distanced public transportation available, which means it can help reduce the spread of COIVD-19.
With a cost of just Rs 5 per minute and a maximum speed of 35km/h, our electric bikes are perfectly suited for travel around the QAU campus.
On this occasion, the Secretary-General QAU Alumni Association Murtaza Noor, the Member Syndicate QAU Professor Dr. Taswaar Hayat, the Director Student Affairs QAU Dr. Mariam Anees, the Director Academics Dr. Ishtiaq Ali, the Deputy Director QEC Dr. Asif Jamal, and others were also present.
