Heavy traffic and congestion are commonly seen on all roads inside the walled city. Chaotic parking is also a major hindrance to smart mobility. Insufficient facilities to safeguard pedestrian and encroachment of pedestrian pathways all add to this chaos. Insufficient signage and markings to guide people and vehicles also hamper smart mobility.
There are 4 major projects planned for smart mobility of ABD area. These will make the life of the residents as well as tourist easy. This biggest change would happen as development of smart roads have been planned for the ABD area. Smart parking planned for the area would ease out the traffic movement as parking is a cumbersome task if one has to move around in this area. Intelligent traffic management system, signage and markings, and multi modal integration of underground metro stations of Choti and Badi chaupar, would ease out traffic in and around chaupars. The citizens residing close to this area and visitors would find a marked difference, once the system is fully implemented. As 97% tourists coming to Jaipur visit Hawa Mahal, this would be a changed experience altogether.
To promote Non-Motorized Transportation (NMT), Public Bicycle sharing project is being implemented by Jaipur Smart City Ltd. In a big way.
There are 2 projects running simultaneously which proves that JSCL is very seriously concerned to increase the share of non-motorized transport. The first project is planned for the city in which 20 cycle stands would be placed in various locations to motivate people to use bicycles in the day to day life. 2 stands have already been stalled one at Ram Niwas Bagh towards SMS Hospital and the other at Jawahar circle. The tendering of the remaining locations has already been done and by May 2018 all the cycle stands would be operational. The proposed locations of these cycle stand are mention for reference

The inauguration of this project has been done so that the bicycle riders can enjoy a bicycle ride at the earliest at a cost-effective price of Rs.10/- per hour. The cost of the project is Rs.3 Cr. This project is being implemented by Greenolution which has been assigned an O&M for 5 years.
The 2nd project of bicycle sharing is on dock less concept. This is being implemented with Zoom car. JSCL is providing space in 30 locations in the walled city area where approximately 300 bicycles would be available. These would be trendy bicycles which would inspire the riders for a ride in the walled city area. The cost has been Rs.10/- per hour, but the bicycles can be availed for 15 minutes also. The payment would be accepted via cashless mode like pay TM wallet etc. The inauguration of this project has been done on 3rd Feb 2018, and bicycles are ready for use in the walled city area.
