This high school dropout has launched special scooter on rent for differently-abled people #JustThrottle

Commuting is an essential need of any being, making it easy and readily available for everyone was the goal.

We thought its important to create accessibility to differently able folks to rent bikes for short/long period for their convenience and so for the first time in India we launched this scooter.

Founder’s Name: Shankar S,

Notes from the founder, Shankar.

“I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.” –Jimmy Dean .

It was a fuming day last summer and we encountered a differently able lady in a neighbourhood, who seated in an electric chair, guiding it’s wheels through the dusty road of the city on her way to Market to buy some household stuff.

Being new to the city, she had no means of other commuting options than relying on that electric chair which she use inside her house as well. Her lovely inspiring smile on her face, muddy wheels, which make her house dirty, were two sights of huge contrast due to her needing to use the wheels inside and outside her home.
We asked ourselves…what if she had a different option to get where ever she needed to be? Never wanting to limit or cause a contrast in her home again!

“Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties” – said Helen Keller.

At Justthrottle, we believe that and worked on it.
