Two-wheeler Taxi service launched in Gurgaon

First-of-its-kind on-demand two-wheeler taxi service is launched in Gurgaon city of Haryana. The on-demand two-wheeler taxi service in Gurgaon was launched by M-taxi, a two-wheeler taxi service provider, which had acquired permit for the service from the Haryana government to start its operations.
Gurgaon became the first city in India which has a legalised taxi system. Bike taxis are better equipped to deal with congestion, traffic, and last mile connectivity, which are the three major problems that Indian cities are struggling to cope with. This type of service already exists in countries like Thailand, Indonesia, and China M-Taxi’s pricing starts at Rs. 25 for the first three kilometres, and Rs. 5 for every subsequent kilometre. Another two-wheeler taxi service, Baxi, has also got permission from the Haryana government to start its operations.
