When were GreenCABS launched ?

GreenCABS were first launched as a pilot project on 27th October 2010 in Patiala, the royal city of Punjab. It was then that cycle rickshaws were made available to the common public for the first time via a phone and a network of call centers.

What is the benefit of rickshaw to the environment, and how GreenCABS are helping to maintain that?

A single rickshaw travel about 40-50 km in a day. When compared to a car of average mileage 15km/litre, GreenCABS can help in saving upto 3 litres of fuel daily and its related emissions. Also, burning of one litre of fuel requires 15.2 kg of fresh air. Therefore, other than exhaust gases, GreenCABS also helps in saving 45.6 kg of fresh air per rickshaw on a daily basis. Informally operating in every nook and corner of our cities, GreenCABS have added a new dimension to the existing transport systems especially in terms of first and last mile connectivity. This modified form of rickshaw operations can help to maintain and enhance its demand and reverse the declining trend of rickshaw operations observed in the recent past.

How will this Dial-an-iSEWA, community based initiative work and how can I contribute to it?

It’s a community based initiative working on the concept of by the people and for the people. Whenever you are travelling on a cycle rickshaw u can refer the traction driver, or in case you know any essential service provider working in your neighborhood or area, you can refer him for the dial an iSEWA facility simply by using your Android/iOS based Smart Phone application or direct web application. Just click the Essential Service provider/rickshaw operator’s picture and submit it to us along with his phone number and name under the particular sector/Area of operation and name of the Colony/ward/rickshaw stand/area, where this Essential Service Provider is operating and incase of a Traction driver where the operator generally parks his rickshaw during free time. After basic verification of the referred Essential Service Provider/rickshaw walla, our administrator will post it to the server. The details of the Essential Service Provider /rickshaw operator would then be available to the general public under the dial-an-iSEWA facility.

How will this help cycle-rickshaw operators?

Dial-a-rickshaw service will help in reducing the number of empty trips on the part of the operator and hence, improve the overall efficiency of the system. It has been observed that 1 to 2 calls per day increase the income of a rickshaw operator by 25-30%. This substantial increase in income can help him improve his living standards and afford a better quality of life. Further, he doesn’t need to stand at a particular place and wait for customers; he can now park his rickshaw anywhere in parking or open areas and move to his client only after a phone call of customer. This will help in reducing the traffic burden on roads.
