Ather is quite clearly the most disruptive electric two-wheeler manufacturer in India at the moment. It has defined a lot of standards in this segment and has been at the forefront when it comes to innovative ideas. In a latest, the company has announced yet another creative partnership with Bounce.
What is Bounce?
Bounce is a dockless first/last mile mobility solution where users can pick up or drop bikes, bicycles or electric bikes anywhere in the city at any time. It is present in Bangalore and Hyderabad and claims that it used to do 1.30 Lakh rides every day before lockdown.
