Hyderabad: Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India has joined hands with self-drive rental platform Drivezy to offer 3,000 scooters on the latter’s platform in Hyderabad and Bengaluru. Drivezy had recently commenced its Smart Commute – a last-mile self-drive rental service – for Hyderabad Metro Rail passengers. The partnership with Honda will expand the company’s fleet to 3,000 units in both the cities.

Drivezy’s marketplace allows individual vehicle owners to list their idle cars, motorcycles and scooters and turn them into profit generating assets by renting the vehicles to customers at a fraction of the cost required to purchase a vehicle. The platform has enlisted over 7,500 vehicles and plans to enlist over 10,000 two-wheelers by the end 2018. Other than Bengaluru and Hyderabad, the service is available in Mangalore and Mysore.

Speaking on the occasion, Ashwarya Singh, CEO and co-founder, Drivezy said, “The future of world belongs to shared, connected and zero waste mobility and we look forward to working closely with Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India towards this mission.”

The company aims to utilise the additional fleet to include one-way, intra-city sharing services for motorcycles and scooters in the city. Customers can pick a two-wheeler from designated locations and drop it at any Drivezy location within city limits.

Yadvinder Singh Guleria, senior V-P, sales and marketing, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India said, “Scooters have a universal acceptance due to their unisex appeal comfort and convenience and are the most preferred choice of customers availing shared mobility services. We thank Drivezy for trusting in Honda for their latest fleet expansion of 3,000 units and wish them the very best.”
