New Delhi: The Gurgaon-based Green Tech Startup, Mobycy has taken its innovative dockless bicycles to the Pink City, in an exclusive association with the Jaipur Metro Rail Corporation (JMRC). Following the association, the smart, dockless bicycles by Mobycy will be available in the vicinity of popular Jaipur metro stations.
A number of daily commuters, students, and visitors can easily hire these smart bikes to paddle their way around the old markets, forts, touristy destinations, amongst other places in Rajasthan’s largest city.
Mobycy had disrupted the mobility sector with the launch of its smart, dockless bicycles in December 2017. Driven with the vision of transforming India into a greener, fitter, cycling nation, Mobycy has been carrying out an aggressive expansion spree.
The Green Tech startup has already spread its wings across Delhi, Gurgaon, Faridabad, Noida, Chandigarh, Gwalior, and Sonipat. Being present across key marketplaces, institutions and universities of these regions, Mobycy has been successful in solving the short-mile connectivity hassle endured by daily commuters, in addition to reducing the Carbon footprint and ushering Indians into a healthier, cycling lifestyle.
“I am thrilled to announce our association with Jaipur Metro. Jaipur being my own city, it’s a proud moment to launch Mobycy in the city which brought me up. Consequently, we’d be making our dockless bikes available for easy hiring in the vicinity of all popular metro stations and marketplaces of Jaipur,” said co-founder Mobycy, Akash Gupta.
“The absence of an organised last mile connectivity option from the metro stations in the city makes Jaipur Metro commuters jittery quite often. By introducing Mobycy’s smart dockless cycles for the commuters to hire and travel across the city at their convenience, we are expecting that the number of passengers in Metro will also increase multi-fold,” said director, Operations, Spokesperson of Jaipur Metro, C S Jeengar.
The dockless bicycles by Mobycy need not be parked at the stations. Users can simply download the Mobycy app and discover the smart bike available in their vicinity specially at Chandpole, Railway Station and Bus Stand Metro Station to begin with. The smart bikes integrated with IoT smart locks and GPS tracking can be unlocked by scanning the QR codes from the app and upon the completion of rides, can be parked anywhere in the vicinity, with the only exception of gated communities and private compounds. The current model of Mobycy makes dockless bicycling highly affordable at about Re 1 per hour ride, or less under the monthly plan, users will pay Rs. 99 for 2 hourly rides per day. Additionally, users will have to sign up using their Aadhaar, PAN, Voter id or Driving License identification and pay a nominal security deposit worth Rs. 199, which is completely refundable. Students within campuses can sign-up with their Student ID cards and pay subsidized security deposit of only Rs. 49.
