The Waltair Division of the East Coast Railway has started the facility of e-cars and e-bikes on rent at the Visakhapatnam railway station.
The facility was inaugurated by Divisional Railway Manager Anup Kumar Satpathy here on Saturday.
A motorbike rental company has set up its facility at the Gate number 1. This project was set up under non-fare revenue.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Satpathy said that visitors, passengers and public at the station can avail this facility at nominal charges.
The concept of e-bikes and cars is to promote environment-friendly motive among the travellers and to encourage the public towards conservation of environment.
The DRM also commissioned two water coolers each on platform nos.1 and 8 donated by Sri Satya Sai Seva Samithi.
