While India’s first on demand 2 wheeler taxi provider M-Taxi already shed light on its intentions to kick off its services from December 1, the firm has received the necessary push right in time and has raised Angel funding, led by Mandeep Singh and Jairaj Singh.
MTaxi, a startup founded by Arunabh Madhur, plans to launch bike taxis on December 1, which aims to offer cheaper and faster mobility in the city of Gurgaon and nearby area. Before founding M-TAXI, Arunabh co-founded a Media content company, has also worked at senior positions with various Media networks
MTaxi has already received all the necessary approvals from the district transport department, traffic police and the state transport authority.
M-Taxi aspires to make the life of an urban city dweller more livable and provide him with that extra productive time to make more out of his daily life. The service has started in Gurgaon from metro stations and plans to spread across NCR in the next phase.
Since it is a two wheeler service, the charges are definitely going to be less than that of four wheelers charged by likes of Uber and Ola. Moreover, a bike can manage to crawl through the heavy traffic jams that a four wheeler cannot.
Plus, we are all very well acquainted with the condition of Indian roads and their never ending traffic jams. The fare for the service is priced competitively – Rs 25 for the first 3 km and Rs 5 per km thereafter.
MTaxi claims that all their riders go through background verification, are trained on behavioral, efficiency aspects and also on hygiene and safety. Passengers are assured of riding with a uniformed Pilot and are provided with a hair cap, helmet, and wet wipe for an optimal conveyance experience.
To start with,100cc bikes will be introduced in the city, which will be driven by trained bikers. All the bikes will have commercial registration numbers and will bear yellow number plates.
Further to the basic safety measures, MTaxi has will provide an insurance package, which not only cover riders but also the passengers.
The service will kick off from December 1 and is an app based service. You can download MTaxi app from Store and call in a two wheeler and check out the service.
