Bike taxi platform Rapido today announced the launch of rental services for multi-point trips in six cities including Bengaluru and Delhi NCR.
Rapido Rental can be booked under selected package duration of one hour, two hours, three hours, four hours, and six hours, and a dedicated ‘Captain’ (Rapido driver-partner) will be available with the customer throughout the trip, Rapido said in a statement.
“Introducing the concept of 2W bike taxi rental services, the company aims to cater to those customers who have to complete multiple tasks at different locations and want to avoid the hassle of multiple bookings and waiting for the ride to arrive,” it added.
Rapido Rental is a multi-stop bike rental to provide services to the needs of people who have to complete multiple tasks at different locations and dislike multiple bookings and wait for the ride to arrive.
Other cities where Rapido has launched its rental services for multi-point trips are Hyderabad, Chennai, Kolkata, and Jaipur.
The firm plans to expand the rental service in close to 100 cities that it is present in.
“In the last few months, we have noticed a rising need for a multi-stop, affordable, and easily accessible ride among customers, especially our high usage customers,” Rapido Co-Founder Aravind Sanka stated.
To ensure safety during the bike taxi ride, Rapido has introduced Safety Shield, which is a lightweight PVC board attached to the Captain’s back like a rucksack or a backpack.
Rapido Rental was launched in the initial Tier I cities.
Rapido was founded in 2015 by Aravind Sanka, Rishikesh SR, and Pavan Guntupalli.
Today, it is the biggest in the 2W ride-sharing segment with more than 25plus million app downloads and around 15 lakh Captains, serving over 10 million customers and 100 million rides so far.
With a presence in almost 100 cities in the country, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Delhi, Bengaluru, Guwahati, and Jaipur are the top cities for Rapido’s usage.
