Bengaluru: Vehicle sharing platform Drivezy's vehicles will now be stationed at OYO properties across India. This is in addition to 1,200 bikes it has already stationed at OYO hotels in Bengaluru and Hyderabad.
In a press statement on Monday, the Bengaluru-based company said that it also plans to increase the tally to one lakh bikes and cars, at OYO properties across India, over the next three years.
Announcing the latest tie-up with OYO Hotels and Homes, the company said that it aims to leverage OYO’s network of over 10,000 leased and franchised buildings in over 300 cities across India. OYO’s guests and other Drivezy customers have access to its vehicles, the statement said.
The move is a also step towards ensuring the “well-being of the assets being rented and prevent vandalism", explained Drivezy CEO Ashwarya Singh, in the statement. “To counter this, we are establishing a dense network of parking spaces in all operational cities and our association with OYO is a step in that direction," he said, adding that customers have to drop their vehicles at c locations the end of the trip.
They have also commenced the deployment of keyless IoT locks to unlock vehicles with a QR code scanner, available on the app, he added.
Gaurav Ajmera, Chief Operating Officer, India and South Asia, OYO Hotels and Homes, said, “Our association with Drivezy will help us add a new dimension to our service offerings, ensuring that our guests have a perfect stay with their own independent hired vehicle without having to worry about booking cabs or drivers."
Drivezy offers cars, motorcycles and scooters on rent at 100 locations in 11 Indian cities, and operates a fleet of 4,000 cars and 14,000 bikes. The company has enlisted more than 12,000 vehicles on its platform since January this year and is working on an on-demand rental option, the statement said.
