Indian Motorcycle Taxi Market Heating Up

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jan 11, 2016) -  World Moto, Inc. (OTC: FARE) (BERLIN: WM7) (BERLIN: A1J8SY) ("World Moto" or the "Company"), a leader in advanced solutions for motorcycle taxis and on-demand transport, today announced that it has shipped Moto-Meters to entrepreneurs establishing motorcycle taxi fleets in Gurgaon.

In recent weeks, several companies such as Bikxie, Baxi, and M-Taxi have begun offering motorcycle taxi services in Gurgaon, Haryana, a district of the National Capital Region (NCR) of India. Today the Company is pleased to announce that Moto-Meters have now been shipped to this rapidly expanding market, and that the Company has already received positive feedback from operators who have installed them on test bikes.

Haryana recently became the second state in India to officially allow 2 wheeled motorcycles for commercial passenger carriage, and multiple operators are currently establishing motorcycle taxi fleets in what is likely to be the world's first city with a fully professionalized motorcycle taxi service. It is expected that hundreds of millions of dollars of investment capital will flow into this region as operators fight for market dominance. During discussions with the Company, several operators have expressed their intention to expand their fleets to tens of thousands of vehicles during the coming year. The Haryana sub region of the NCR, which includes the Gorgaon district, has a population of more than 16 million people according to the 2011 census, and it is estimated that it can support several hundred thousand motorcycle taxis.

CEO Paul Giles stated, "The significance of fully professionalized motorcycle taxi fleets in a country with more than a billion people cannot be understated. With so much at stake, there is going to be a race to grab market share and the technologies employed are going to set the standard for how this market will evolve in other areas around the world. Apps and the Moto-Meter™ have distinct case uses and both are a necessity for operators who want to compete and thrive."
