Introducing an Uber like model for bicycles in India, Mobycy today flagged off dockless bicycles in Delhi NCR in a move which can combat pollution and traffic congestion.
Commencing operations with 5,000 smart bikes, the startup has made its dockless bicycles available across Gurgaon and is spreading in parts of Delhi, Noida, and Faridabad.
Fitted with Internet of Things (IOT) locks and GPS tracking, these smart bicycles can be easily hired via the Mobycy app, unlocked with a QR Code and paid for digitally.
Looking at the big issue of last mile connectivity and pollution in Delhi NCR, the startup also aims to help users commute their last mile distance of three to six kilometers with their anytime, anywhere available bicycles.
Daily commuters can rent these bikes in public places like metro stations, bus stands, key markets and universities.
" These bicycles can now be hired at several places of Gurgaon and some places of Delhi, Noida and Faridabad remotely through our app. In addition to providing commuters with a healthier, eco-friendly way of commuting, these bicycles give them the liberty to complete shorter commutes, without being limited to the docking stations," founder and CEO Mobycy, Akash Gupta said.
