Bikxie, the two-wheeler taxi service provider launched its services in Gurgaon on January 1 2016.
The on-demand service will ply from and to metro stations, bus stops or any other destination.
Bikxie was launched by T L Satyaprakash, deputy commissioner at the Gurgaon regional transport office in Mini Secretariat in the presence of senior RTO personnel. Bikxie will be available as an app and commuters will also be able to hail the two-wheeler taxis from key locations around the city including malls and universities. Recognizing the potential in this space, Mohit Sharma, Divya Kalia and Dennis Ching co-founded Bikxie, a two wheeler taxi service.
Speaking on the development, Mohit Sharma, co-founder & CEO at Bikxie said,
“Gurgaon is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the country. However, it continues to be plagued by issues related to the daily commute and especially last mile connectivity. Bikxie aims to eliminate these hassles by providing citizens with a fast, affordable and safe alternative to autos and rickshaws.”
He added that every ride on Bikxie is tracked and comes with the guarantee of utmost safety which makes it the most viable choice of commuters. After expanding our reach to all areas of Gurgaon, the company plans to tap other cities of Haryana.
“We are also in advanced discussion with senior officials of other cities to allow us to provide similar service in those cities,” added Sharma.
Bikxie’s services will be available in DLF Cyber City between 9am and 7pm. Initially, 10 bikes will be available for commuters. Bikxie will be a highly cost-effective solution with Rs 10 for the first 2 kilometres and Rs 5 for every subsequent kilometre.
The passengers can feed in a safety contact into the app. As soon as the trip starts, the safety contact gets a message with the driver’s name, bike number and phone number along with all trip details. When the ride ends, the safety contact is intimated again.
Bikxie has raised seed funding from individual investment bankers and is in talks with some key angel investors for its next round of capital infusion.
