About PBS


SAVARI is a Hubballi Dharwad Smart City Limited project. Developed and Maintained by Trinity Technologies & Software Solutions Pvt Ltd.

SAVARI is the Public Bicycle Share (PBS) system of Hubballi-Dharwad twin city and the second-largest urban agglomeration of Karnataka in terms of area, after capital Bengaluru and third largest in population after Bengaluru and Mysuru. While Dharwad is the administrative headquarters, the city of Hubballi, situated about 20 km south-east of Dharwad, is the commercial centre and business hub of North Karnataka.

PBS (Public Bicycle Share)

This is a system where bicycles are owned and operated by a civic administration and its associates, for shared, short-term use by local residents as well as visitors, on an easy rental basis. The system involves borrowing a bicycle from any ‘docking station’ across the city and returning the borrowed bicycle after a ride to any ‘docking station’, as suits the convenience of the rider.

“SAVARI”, the PBS of Hubballi-Dharwad will be implemented and operated by Trinity, an Hubballi-Dharwad city based company and promoting the concept and culture of cycling in Hubballi-Dharwad City. Currently the system features 34 hubs and 340 bicycles.
