The program takes a proactive approach to ensure equal opportunity by prioritizing a fair distribution of bikes:

Gender Equality: The program aims for a balanced distribution between male and female students. This promotes inclusivity and empowers female students to have greater control over their mobility.
Rural Considerations: Recognizing potential differences in needs, the program offers a slightly adjusted quota for rural areas. Here, there’s a proposed 70/30 split favoring male students to account for longer distances and potentially less developed public transportation options.

A Phased Rollout – Patience is Key

The Punjab Student Mobility Program is being rolled out in phases to ensure a smooth and efficient distribution process:

Phase 1: This initial phase will see a total of 20,000 bikes distributed across the province. This one thousand electric bikes and nine thousands petrol bikes.
