The Uber and Yulu Partnership launch E-Bikes on the streets of Bangalore
In early May 2019, Uber began testing e-bikes and bicycles on the streets of Bangalore, India.
India is a country rich in opportunities, but the installation of Uber will be difficult given the monopoly of the local start-up Ola.After just a few days of launch, Uber users in Bangalore have noticed a new means of transport that appears on the App : self-service bikes in partnership with Yulu.
These bicycles have the same concept as the Parisian scooters, they will be self-service and localizable, customers will only find them via location, and unlock via scanning the attached QR code.
The first 3 rides will be free and supported by Uber, but the following will be billed.
- Bikes can reach a speed of 25 kilometers per hour which can be dangerous in the city. The government may impose a license to operate these machines.
- Indians are more likely to take the "tuk tuk" (the motorized tricycle) than a taxi. This choice is relative to the culture and even to the purchasing power which is limited.
