Abstract:

Ride sharing and hailing services have given new dimension to urban mobility. They provide mobility as a service and promote asset utilization. These service are available in all the modes such as cars/taxis, twowheelers, auto rickshaws, and e-rickshaws, among others. Auto rickshaws and taxis have been present in cities for a significant period of time and have certain regulatory provisions, but the bike taxis have recently entered India. Bike taxis serve as an intermediate public transport mode offering first and last mile services and providing access to underlying areas in various countries. These services were earlier limited to only Goa but now have been widely accepted in various states. Thus, this study intends to understand the emerging role of bike taxis in urban mobility.
