In a landmark development,‘Baxi’ is expected to soon provide two wheeler contract carriages (or bike taxis) in Gurgaon, making Haryana the second state after Goa to have such services.
The government of Haryana has removed all holdups and legal hurdles to allow Baxi to provide last mile connectivity to offices, schools and other important stations at a competitive price.
Baxi claims that a trip from HUDA City Centre to Cyber Park, or from Sikandarpur to Cyber Hub would cost around Rs 25 only. ‘Baxis’ can be hailed directly from govt. allocated stands or ordered online through an Android app.
The initial service will start from a few high traffic corridors, and expand rapidly across the city of Gurgaon.
Baxi’s new disruption aims to compete with existing cab services and autos with a viable revenue model for operators, at a fraction of the cost of a cab or rickshaws.
“Our pilots will be well trained on hygiene, etiquette, safety and other aspects that makes the passenger comfortable in using our service. They will also carry helmets and hair nets for the pillion riders, and provide them with wipes to freshen up at the end of the ride,” said Ashutosh Johri, MD of 74 BC Technologies, the company that owns Baxi.
