Gurgaon to get Goa-like ‘Pilots on Wheels’
Haryana takes a leaf out a unique mode of transport ‘Pilots’ in Goa and is all set to approve bike taxis. Soon commuters will be able to take benefit of this service in Gurgaon as the regional transport authority has given its green signal to a private entity for the debut of the service.
In India, after Goa, Haryana becomes the second state to approve bike taxis. This service is offered in several countries including neighbouring China, Sweden, Cambodia, Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Brazil and Thailand.
Daily travelers looking to commute to their respective destinations, from metro stations or bus stops, will be catered by the bike taxis.
By the end of November, the bike taxi service will be launched. Initially, it will have 100 motorcycles in its fleet.
Despite the presence of the Delhi Metro, National Capital Region (NCR) continues to struggle with congested roads which become a nightmare during rush hours. The introduction of such services may contribute towards the resolution of this issue.
