A biking tour attended by journalists was held in the capital on Friday to symbolically inaugurate an urban scheme on using smart bike facilities in Tehran, a pilot plan that will be officially set in motion in a couple of weeks.
The tour began at 7 a.m. from Iranshahr Street to Moqaddam House Museum. Over 600 smart bicycles were shared between the journalists participating in the event, IRNA reported.
Mohsen Pour-Seyed-Aqaei, managing director of Transportation and Traffic Organization of Tehran Municipality, noted that since the preliminary studies on the capital's capacity for the plan started over a year ago, "the smart bike facility has been proved to be a viable solution to the city's air pollution and traffic problem."
