With Nagpur Maha Metro getting started in some of the main areas of the city, Bounce, a Bangalore based startup company, Wicked Adventures Pvt Ltd. started its service in Nagpur region as well. The company has been providing cycles to the commuters even before the metro service was available.
The company has been providing cycles to the commuters even before the metro service was available.
Bounce cycles are available at the metro stations or on many of the squares in the city. The cycles can be used by scanning the QR code for once to reach the station, which has a GPS tracker as a safety from theft. Another version of the same series is the one that you can subscribe to on a monthly period basis. The one with QR code has a smart lock which only opens when you recharge it by scanning the QR code.
“The idea is to reduce the carbon footprint and to lessen the stress of carrying a vehicle to metro station and then catch the train” said Nikhil Bhartia a partner in Bhartia Aqua.
Bhartia further added, “It is unintelligent to first reach the metro station by your own vehicle and then getting into the train, this will make you spend more money than required, an than the guessed expenses by the authorities at Maha Metro.
Using Bounce Cycles by verifying the QR code or subscribing cycles per month will reduce the cost plus make you fit and energetic.
Bounce will soon be introducing an E-cycle in the same category and in large numbers. These cycles are already available for trial purposes in the city. There are more than 350 cycles in the whole city out of which 10% are E-cycles.
Besides metro stations, Bounce Cycles are available for morning exercises on Laxmi Nagar Square and Walkers street. These cycles are monthly subscribed and can be either used as pic n drop or can be used on a take away basis.
