Kochi: Infopark is going green! Putting an end to daily bargaining hassles to commute within the campus, e-auto services have been started and are being welcomed warmly. Techies can now travel in the e-autos between various buildings on the 350-acre Infopark campus.

Vehicle ST Solutions and Infopark are jointly promoting this service to connect the buildings inside the campus. The service can also be availed to access the buildings from the main gates of Phase 1 and Phase 2.

Ashik C Sreenivasan, Associative QA Manager at Immco Software Solutions Pvt. Ltd. and President of Prathidhwani Kochi said on the initiative, “Ever since Prathidhwani started its activities in Kochi, we noticed that a major woe of the employees here has been related to commuting. The companies here are scattered around, some of them working in multiple office spaces across different buildings. Employees have to often face the blazing sun or torrential rains, which is compounded with the challenge of finding parking space. The shelter built over some of the footpaths by Infopark authorities offer only partial relief.”

Apart from the driver, four people can travel in the electric vehicle. The fare is Rs.10 irrespective of the destination and a passenger can hire an auto by simply making a phone call.

Ashik also said that along with the provisions for news and entertainment, the safety of women passengers is also taken care of in the GPS-fitted autos.

Progressive Techies, a socio-cultural organisation of Kerala IT employees, has also welcomed the initiative. Anish Panthalani, Senior Systems Engineer, UVJ Technologies and the Secretary of Progressive Techies said, “The e-auto will cause no pollution as well, compared to diesel or petrol vehicles.”

Meanwhile, steps are being taken to develop a mobile app for booking e-auto.

Prathidhwani has also welcomed KSRTC’s new e-bus to Infopark, which was inaugurated by C Raveendranath, Minister for Education, at Vyttila Mobility Hub in June.
