Dhaka University vice chancellor Akhtaruzzaman inaugurates ‘Jobike-DU Chakkar’ organised jointly by DUCSU and Jobike authorities at a programme in Dhaka University’s TSC on Wednesday.
Dhaka University vice chancellor Md Akhtaruzzaman launched the service while deputy education minister Mohibul Hassan Chowdhoury spoke as a chief guest at the launching programme.
DU VC hoped this service would help ease traffic movement in the campus area.
DUCSU’s student transport affairs secretary Shams-E-Noman said introducing the service was one of his key electoral pledges.
“I hope this service would be a big leap forward in making our Dhaka University campus carbon free,” he said.
Jobike rolled out its service in DU on 7 October on a pilot basis.
The service will be only available on the campus for students, teachers and university staff members.
Registered users can use the facility to travel from Nilkhet to Nimtali, Palashi and Shaheed Minar to Shahbagh using the service.
Users will have to pay Tk 2.50 for first five minutes and Tk .40 for every next minute.
