Vivekananda Hallekere, CEO and co-founder, Bounce, said, “From the apprehension that dockless and unsupervised scooter sharing wouldn’t work in India to crossing 30 million rides, we have come a long way. The past 2 years have been slow with COVID but it’s getting more exciting with Bounce building its own EVs and battery swapping infrastructure.”
Bounce Share (Bounce), a smart mobility firm, said that it had reached 3 crore rides on its dockless scooter sharing network, accounting for more than 17 crores shared kilometers.
“We at Bounce Share believe that access to mobility is access to livelihood. We are proud and happy to share that we have crossed 30 million rides which are over 170 million shared kilometers,” he added.
According to a press release, the company has also established a battery-swapping network that can be accessed via the Bounce App through key partnerships. It recently launched a series of collaborations with Nobroker, Park+, Readyassist, Kitchens@, HelloWorld, and Goodbox to build infrastructure to support a million or more scooters within the next 12 to 24 months.
“While we continue to make mobility accessible and affordable to all, we have been 100% electric and all rides are EV rides. We also launched Bounce Infinity to enable electric mobility to millions of Indians who can’t switch to electricity for many reasons. One of the key USPs of Bounce Infinity would be that you can share these scooters like Airbnb when you are not using it,” Hallekere said.
Bounce Share’s patented keyless technology, allows customers to pick up or drop the bike in any legalized parking across the city, the release added.
