GTALCC Kicks Off Low Carbon Mobility (Cycling) Initiative
GTALCC’s Low Carbon Mobility (Cycling) Initiative kicked off with a campaign to promote the usage of electric bicycles in 3 offices in Putrajaya and Cyberjaya. This effort is to reduce the use of cars and motorcycles for short trips and patrol in the cities – 5 units were handed over to Putrajaya Corporation and 3 units to SEDA Malaysia on 6th August 2019 at Kompleks Perbadanan Putrajaya. 4 more units will be handed over to Majlis Perbandaran Sepang later this month.
In Putrajaya, the ceremony was graced by YBrs. En. Ahmad Farid from MESTECC, YBhg. Datuk Dr. Aminuddin President of Putrajaya Corporation, Mr. Niels Knudson; Deputy Resident Representative of UNDP, Ir. Dr. Sanjayan CEO of SEDA Malaysia and senior management from PPj, UNDP and SEDA.
Starting with 5 units of ebikes as a pilot, Putrajaya Corporation intends to use more ebikes for its enforcement rounds and for commuting to meetings within Putrajaya to reduce local emissions in the City. As the E-bikes provides pedal assistance, riders will enjoy more comfort and less fatigue when cycling in tropical Malaysia. This is part of GTALCC’s work to demonstrate low carbon projects at cities and support Putrajaya Green City 2025.
