Rapido Bike officially flagged off in Shillong
Shillong: Rapido Bike has launched its operations in Shillong. This Bengaluru-based organisation offers a novel take on an age-old concept of transportation by replacing the conventional four-wheeler taxis with bikes. The organisation wants to tackle the issues that commuters face due to heavy traffic conditions, especially during the morning rush hours. It offers commuters the alternative option of a bike instead of a car or public transport to navigate through traffic snarls quickly and reach your destination on time.
In the wake of the launch, Rapido is currently offering introductory rates of just Rs 29 for 4 per KM. It aims to simplify commuting for citizens and enabling them to navigate the small roads and traffic snarls conveniently. The app can be easily downloaded from the play store in an Android or IOS phone. You can book your ride by entering your pick up and drop locations. A rider, also known as a Rapido ‘Captain’ will come and pick you up from your location and drop you off at your desired destination.
Suman Acharjee, city head Shillong says, “The Rapido concept is based around providing economical, convenient and high-quality transport facilities for solo commuters, especially those who need to travel far or have to get somewhere quickly. It can be someone who’s late for an exam or needs to get to a hospital for an appointment or in the event of an emergency. In such cases, a bike is invariably faster than a car or a bus. However, not everyone might have a bike or know how to ride one. That’s where Rapido comes into the picture.”
