Makerere University launched digital bikes for students.

Makerere University recently launched a new initiative aimed at facilitating the movement of students around the campus. The initiative involves the deployment of digital bikes at nine stations strategically placed around the premises. Each station has at least 20 bikes, making it convenient for students to access them.
The deployment of digital bikes is a step towards achieving a sustainable and environmentally-friendly campus. Students have expressed their appreciation to the University administration for this initiative, which will make it easier for them to move around the campus.
The Department of Environmental Management, College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, has applauded the initiative, noting that it promotes greener transportation, healthier residents, and minimal noise pollution. Digital bikes are a significant step towards achieving a sustainable and environmentally-friendly campus.
Students will access the digital bikes by downloading the Digital Bikes app from the Play store and have a valid national or University ID. The cost for each ride is UGX 500, which lasts approximately 20 minutes. Students need not return the bikes to the same station from which they picked them up. Instead, they can park the bikes at any station near their destination, making it convenient and flexible for students to get around the campus.
