Pune, Mumbai (Maharashtra)
Only 18% of Indians own private vehicles. The majority of India relies on public transport. As cities reopen, significantly fewer people will use mass public transport. Trends indicate that many will purchase personal two-wheelers, causing traffic congestion and pollution to rise in cities. This will undo years of progress in transportation policy and worsen the condition of many of our cities. 70% of all mobility in Indian cities is to-and-from a place of work/study.
Our solution to the problem is to offer sustainable mobility solutions to employees, students, and residents via their businesses/organizations. Working closely with manufacturing plants, IT parks, universities, and townships, we want to offer shared/ rented cycles, electric cycles, and electric bikes to individuals in their communities. We will recharge and maintain all the assets. 6. This method ensures rapid impact as it does not rely on government infrastructure or permissions to scale.
