the Bike Taxi (1)

In the wake of Goa’s two-wheeler taxi concept, the Government of Haryana has waved a green flag to the use of two-wheelers to operate as contract carriages through the streets of Gurgaon. The service will initially cover some of the high traffic areas of Gurgaon, and cover the entire city in the next few months.

Gurgaon-based 74 BC Technologies Pvt Ltd founded by IIT Delhi alumni, Ashutosh Johri and Manu Rana, will launch its bike-as-a-taxi service under the brand name ‘Baxi’. With an intention to provide a swift and economic mode of transport through the ever rising congestion on the city roads this service has been devised. Hiring a cab instead of driving your own car offers little respite from traffic, but still burns the pocket.

The bike taxis will offer inexpensive last-mile connectivity to offices, colleges, schools and residential areas, from metro and bus stations. The Baxis can be hailed directly from government allocated stands, or called to the customer’s location, anywhere in the city, using a mobile application that will be available on the Google Play store.
According to Ashutosh Johri, MD of 74 BC Technologies, “Our pilots will be well trained regarding key aspects like hygiene, etiquette, and safety. They will carry helmets and hair nets for the pillion riders, and offer them wet wipes to freshen up at the end of the ride. Customers can also spot our bikes from a distance, and all our pilots will be wearing uniforms.”

This bike taxi service is popular in a lot of countries. Our recently introduced Olas and Ubers are doing a great job for the masses, lets see how these Baxis treat us when they reach our cities!
