Ahmedabad, January 2020: MYBYK, an Ahmedabad based company providing sustainable mobility solutions, is now looking to expand aggressively in the entire city of Ahmedabad. It applied for and received permits under the “Amdabike” project of Smart City Ahmedabad Development Limited (SCADL) to provide its fully automated IoT enabled dockless bicycle sharing service.
MYBYK expands 30 bicycle hubs in Ahmedabad with a fixed monthly subscription
The company has already set up a network of 30 HUBS connecting to the BRTS in Ahmedabad where users can DROP the bike at the boarding station and similarly PICK up another bike from the station where they alight to go to their destination. For this the company has already deployed a fleet of 500 cycles and another 500 cycles are on their way. Over the coming months, MYBYK plans to connect to all the remaining BRTS and AMTS stations as well as upcoming Metro (in future).
It is a perfect partnership where SCADL will invest in providing space and creating common parking infrastructure while operators like us will invest in bicycles, technology, and operations. We are not seeking any subsidy from the government and will have the necessary operational freedom which is essential to make PBS a success says CA Arjit Soni, founder of MYBYK.
Users can operate bicycles from their home, just like their personal cycles for daily chores or health or leisure. Here are the hubs which will be going live on 26th January 2020:
