Baxi, India’s first on-demand motorbike taxi company, reached another milestone by crossing 3,000 rides a day in Gurgaon and Faridabad.
Of the total bookings, one-third was made on the company’s mobile application.
In three months, Baxi completed 75,000 rides, with two of their customers taking more than 100 rides each.
“The number of passengers has grown in last three months and it is very encouraging. Without spending on advertising, we have 50,000 registered users. Most of the operational issues are sorted and we are ready to step on the accelerator,” Manu Rana, co-founder of Baxi, said.
“Our focus is on increasing the size of Buddy Network. It feels good when friends call to say that they spotted a Baxi near their homes and offices. To meet the latent demand from our large user base, we will add 2,000 bikes this month,” Rana said.
Baxi also extended the month-long campaign targeted at employees of leading corporate firms in Gurgaon. Snapdeal, Delhivery, PolicyBazaar, CarDekho, IgniteWorld and Foodpanda have been promoting the use of Baxi among their employees as a convenient mode for last-mile connectivity from Metro and bus stations.
Employees can get three to four free rides by downloading the Baxi app from Google Play Store and registering using company specific promo codes.
The number of daily rides increased by 200% in February, compared to the previous month. Over 35% of the people using the service are repeat customers – those who took two or more rides.
The company turned its focus to growth by starting its services in Faridabad. It, now, plans to extend Baxi to Noida in Uttar Pradesh.
