Motorcycle taxi in Bengaluru

Heytaxi, a new taxi service will roll out in January, in Bengaluru. It plans to bring motorcycle taxis, the kind you may have seen in Goa, to the City.

Heytaxi has 27 registered riders in the city and is planning to induct more in the coming weeks. From January, the service will be available at a base fare of Rs 20 for first 2 kms and Rs 7 per Km after that. It is also running a promotional campaign this month offering two free rides to customers up to 5 Kilometers.

 

The app based service is already functioning in Mumbai and Hyderabad. Besides requesting a ride, customers can also request riders to pick up and drop parcels. The taxi service in Bengaluru, however, will be initially available only to men due to safety reasons.

 

Heytaxi sees good potential for growth in Bengaluru as its charges are cheaper than auto fare. It also hopes to compete with the other app based taxi services in the city.
