Wicked Ride bags Bangalore Metro contract

To provide last- mile connectivity for commuters
Wicked Ride, a luxury bike rental company, has announced that it has bagged the prestigious contract from The Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) for providing last-mile connectivity to commuters using the Bangalore Metro. Wicked Ride would be putting up a counter at the allotted area in each of the 5 stations to carry out motorcycle rentals. The facility will be available all seven days of the week with adequate manpower from 5 am to 11 pm.

Wicked Ride through its utility arm Apna Ride will provide electric and non-electric mobility systems (Two Wheelers) on hire for last-mile connectivity at the Indiranagar, Trinity, Byapanahalli, Mantri Square and Peenya metro stations at Bangalore. BMRCL had recently proposed to grant licenses for operating two-wheeler mobility service systems to provide the last-mile connectivity to commuters at nine Metro stations at Bangalore. This will enable commuters to travel short distances for work.

“The primary objective of this initiative was to provide a viable option for Bangalore Metro commuters to hire two wheelers at Metro stations for their local commute” said Vivekananda HR, Co-founder of Wicked Ride. “They can go to the Apna Ride two-wheeler rental kiosk at the station, hire the two-wheeler, finish work, come back to the station and dock the vehicle again or leave it at any of the designated docking locations across the city”.
