Rent a Smart Bike in India - Youth Apps

Smart Bike has arrived in India and successfully used in Bohpal, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Vijayawada & Ranchi as of today by Smartbike Mobility Pvt Ltd in association with nextbike GmbH, Germany. Their aim to have Smart Bike rolled out across India and also in the Smart Cities which is being developed.

Smart Bike is handsome and pretty from the looks of the bike. Oops I forgot we are not describing the Smart Bike, we are going to take you through the process of registering, booking, hiring, renting and dropping.  This also covers the charges and the extra money which you need to shell out if something happens to the bike.  In my view this is not the right approach. Smart Bike company should have insured the smart cycle and should have added as a premium toward the usage charges or collected upfront and returned back once the smart bike is returned. Hope they look into this method of protecting the asset and also the customer satisfaction.

Now, lets look at the SmartBike Mobility app on its usage and also how to rent a Smart Bike and other modalities around it.  First SmartBike Mobility Mobile App.
