Chartered Bike – Social media marketing

April 5, 2018 0 Comments

Chartered Bike is an ambitious project of Bhopal Smart City Development Corporation Limited (BSCDCL). It’s a Public Bike Sharing (PBS) project aimed at promoting bike culture, reduce congestion from roads and spread the vision of Green & Clean Smart City. Chartered Bike was launched in the month of June 2017, with 500 GPS enabled bicycles from NextBike & 50 docking stations.


Chartered Bike project was aimed at promoting Biking culture and hence, it required us to work on a comprehensive plan promoting health & environmental benefits of using a bicycle. Our objective was to spread awareness about the initiative to masses of Bhopal & communicate the ease of using Chartered Bike system.


Being a physical activity, not a lot of people are genuinely motivated to cycle. Moreover, cycle is not a prime mean of transport in Bhopal and establishing Chartered Bike’s positioning as iconic project, defining ‘Smart City Bhopal’ was a major challenge for us.


We chose most popular social media platforms in Bhopal – Facebook, Twitter & Instagram. Among our TG, these were the apt medium to communicate our stories and drive interest towards cycling.

We chose to create content around Health Benefits, Environmental benefits, Cycling events & even city specific updates to drive users’ interest. Moreover, in order to motivate Chartered Bike users, we created photo contests & featured them on Chartered Bike docking stations.


  • Regular set of updates on social media kept the buzz flowing & initiative became a huge hit among cyclists. Many users tweeted about @CharteredBike & Posted pictures on their own social media.
  • We garnered 8,000+ facebook page likes with reach of above 35,000 people in Bhopal. In total, brand could reach out to 260,000+ people & 45,000+ people engaged with the page.
  • Twitter saw reach of approx. 150,000 people & engagement of above 6% – phenomenal for any brand.
