Drones can wait. Zomato’s pedalling its way to customers for now

  • Zomato may be preparing for a future with drone deliveries, but for some of its immediate problems, the food-delivery app’s solution is old-world: bicycles.
  • The firm is introducing mechanical and electric bikes into its last-mile delivery fleet, it said in a press release yesterday (Feb. 11).
  • Some 50,000 Zomato cyclists are already on the road across 12 Indian cities, with “(a) majority of the fleet pushing the pedal in Delhi NCR,” the company release said.
  • It has now partnered with bike-sharing apps like Mobycy and Yulu and Zoomcar’s PEDL, to roll out electric bicycles in the over 150 Indian cities it operates in.
