Bike taxi launched in Chennai

Bengaluru-based organisation Rapido Bike has launched its operations in Chennai. This company offers a novel take on an age-old concept of transportation by replacing the conventional four-wheeler taxis with bikes. Rapido’s services have been widely received in South India, a statement said, adding that the company is looking to expand its reach across the country gradually. 
"The main aim of Rapido is to provide economical, cost-effective, fuel-efficient and time-saving transport. The organization wants to tackle the issues that commuters face due to heavy traffic conditions, especially during the morning rush hours," it said.

It offers commuters the alternative option of a bike instead of a car or public transport to navigate through traffic snarls quickly and reach your destination on time. Sharavana, regional manager for Rapido, said, "the Rapido concept is based around providing economical, convenient and high-quality transport facilities for solo commuters, especially those who need to travel far or have to get somewhere quickly.

It can be someone who’s late for an exam or needs to get to a hospital for an appointment or in the event of an emergency. In such cases, a bike is invariably faster than a car or a bus. However, not everyone might have a bike or know how to ride one. That’s where Rapido comes into the picture. Our services are currently available in Bangalore, Mysore, Coimbatore, Trichy, Madurai, Hyderabad, Gurgaon and 20 Other Cities in India."
