Bengaluru-based startup Rapido has entered into the Delhi market. The four years old Rapido bike taxi platform has marked its national presence by foraying into the national capital region.
The startup that will be functioning within the central and south Delhi region stated that it would be a solution for last-mile commutes, especially for the ones who need to travel to and fro the metro station every day. With the launch of its odd-even scheme (Rapido promo codes) that offers free rides to its users, Rapido is all set to make its grand entry in the new region.
Rapido claims to have around 5 lakh service providers on its network, referred to as captains, claiming to have served over 10 million customers. Rapido follows a dual helmet policy, where they provide helmets both to the rider and the pillions. The company stated that it has witnessed a high percentage of repeated orders from its existing customer base.
Rapido, founded by Rishikesh SR, Pavan Guntupalli, and Aravind Sanka in 2015, has by far raised $78.4 million funding from its investors. The company is present in over 90 locations across India. Rapido had already marked its presence in Gurgaon, Noida, Gaziabad, & Faridabad in 2016. The Rapido app is available on iOS and Android platforms.
