Free e-scooter ride for 3 months in IIIT Hyderabad: Hala Mobility launches App

Hyderabad: Hala Mobility, a startup incubated at T-hub under the lab32 project cohort 6, launched its user application for customers to book electric scooter rides for inter-campus commuting, pay rentals, or other services.

The application was launched by Principal Secretary (ITE&C) Jayesh Ranjan and other prominent ecosystem leaders including Mahankali Srinivas Rao, CEO of T-Hub Hyderabad, Ajit Rangnekar, Director General of Research and Innovation Circle of Hyderabad, and Dr. Shanta Thoutam, chief innovation officer at Telangana state Innovation Cell (TSIC).

Hala showcased a keyless smart app and the first booking was made by Jayesh Ranjan. The launch and demo were done to showcase how inter-campus commuting can be solved by electric bikes and reduce pollution on the campuses.

The service is expected to be launched by December. It will be accessible to everyone who is within the IIIT-Hyderabad campus. They can take benefit of this e-bike deployed by Hala free of cost for the next 3 months.

These smart scooters are equipped with smart batteries and Hala will also deploy a few charging stations within the campus. Hala is a 100% electric ride-sharing platform born and brought up in Hyderabad solving last-mile connectivity problems with a vision of reducing pollution, traffic congestion, and affordable commute.

All the scooters are equipped with Bluetooth connectivity and GPS making it easy to unlock the vehicle via mobile phone. The homegrown startup was facilitated by TSIC for the recent Dubai Expo 2021 and TiE Sustainability Summit 2021.

"We are building an ecosystem of electric mobility. Our proprietary AI/ML-enabled tech stack helped us scale up in our B2B landscape and now we want to leverage it to our customers and create an infrastructure that improves the adaption and penetration of electric vehicles. We are planning to deploy 15000 scooters in the next 12 months and will mark our presence in 6 cities," said Srikanth Reddy, Hala Founder CEO

Jayesh Ranjan said it is interesting that Hala decided to extend their services to EV vehicles irrespective of the brand they are associated with, which strengthens the ecosystem further
