Mobike, the Beijing headquartered bike sharing services, is about to make its debut entry in India from Pune in the next few weeks and will be extending its service in 10 other cities across the country within the next one year, recently reported the Economic Times (ET).
According to the ET report, Vibhor Jain, India Head for Mobike, said: “The product itself is so great that there is an aspirational value to it. Mobike is transforming the urban landscape. When people see value in what you are offering as a service, they are ready to change their behaviour.”
“We have tied up with the Pune Municipal Corporation, and they will provide us with parking spaces across the city. The idea is to have a parking station every 150-200 metres,” he added. The company is in talking terms with private groups like several resident welfare associations for providing them parking space.
India is the second major market that the company will be launching in, post its $2.7-billion acquisition by Meituan Dianping, China’s largest provider of ondemand services, reprted ET.
