Wheelstreet, a leading motorbike rental platform, has launched a dockless commute platform for users. After getting a boost of $120,000 from American seed accelerator Y Combinator in September this year, Wheelstreet is expanding its offerings and looking at creating a niche in the motorbike rental market.
Dockless commute provides point-to-point transportation without human intervention. The user will be able to pick up a bike within 100 metres without any external or third party involvement. This model currently exists in countries such as the US and China. Wheelstreet has taken the early-bird advantage and introduced dockless commute for the ease of consumers.
Wheelstreet Go aims to make intra-city commute hassle-free and allow users to book scooters by merely scanning the QR Code on the vehicles made available at the their doorsteps.
"The dockless commute will solve a real problem in the Indian market. Technology enabled GPS, smart locks and immobilisers will ensure the security of the bikes. We are excited about this newest feature of Wheelstreet and our consumers have reflected the same enthusiasm. We are also looking at adding 25,000 scooters to our existing fleet in the upcoming quarter," said Pranay Shrivastava, co-founder and CEO of Wheelstreet.
"Wheelstreet is on a mission to solve traffic woes of commuters in India. The dockless commute has been launched in three specific regions in Bengaluru: Koramangala, BTM and HSR Layout. We have observed the trends of early adopters in these areas and have received a hearty response with high repeat usage per day trying the dockless commute in the pilot phase!," added Moksha Srivastava, co-founder and CMO of Wheelstreet.
