New Delhi: MobiKwik on Tuesday announced its entry into a new vertical in the travel category with its tie-up with ONN Bikes, a bike rental platform that simplifies the way people commute daily.

This alliance, which will enable MobiKwik users to rent a bike, scooter or scooty through its app, is aimed at making intra-city travel hassle free, affordable and convenient.

The service will be live in 6 cities namely Bangalore, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Kota, Mysuru and Udaipur as a part of the launch and will expand to more cities in the near future.

Two-wheelers are a preferred option across tier I, II and III towns and cities in India, owing to a variety of reasons including increased traffic snarls, increasing pollution levels, limitation of space.

"We are committed to drive financial inclusion for a wider spectrum of Indians, beyond tier I towns and cities with more use cases and two-wheeler rental is a promising category," said senior director and business head, MobiKwik, Bikram Bir Singh.

"This partnership will help us to reach out to millions of new customers, across cities. Also, this association will offer convenience to commuters who will be able to rent a bike and make payments via MobiKwik app," said Akashdeep Singal, chief marketing officer and co-founder, ONN Bikes.
