Winners of STAMP Challenge 2018 Hyderabad announced

Hyderabad, Aug 11 (UNI) WRI India Ross Center and the Toyota Mobility Foundation (TMF) in collaboration with Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (HMRL) and L&T Metro Rail (Hyderabad) Limited (LTMRHL) announced three winners of the Station Access and Mobility Program (STAMP) Challenge on Saturday.

The open innovation challenge is in its second year and brings together ideas from technology and service providers, mobility entrepreneurs, NGOs, corporations and citizens to improve access and last-mile connectivity to mass transit systems.

The STAMP 2018 Challenge in Hyderabad received significant response from electric vehicle manufacturers, technology companies, service providers and mobility entrepreneurs.

The winning solutions predominantly addressed two areas of intervention--service models to improve commuter experience and systems to increase accessibility and utilization of metro transit in Hyderabad.

The winners went through an intense review process in three stages in a span of six weeks. A panel of industry experts shortlisted the best applications to constitute the STAMP 2018 Cohort, who thereafter underwent a four-day accelerator program in Hyderabad. Experts from different backgrounds including metro agencies, investment groups, product designing, customer relations and communications guided the cohorts develop the proposed solutions and tailor them to the specific needs of Indian cities.
Today, a panel of judges reviewed the pitches made by the cohorts, from which three winning solutions were selected.

They are-- Mobycy, a dockless multimodel shared mobility app that deploys smart bicycles, e-bikes and e-scooters through QR code access, with facilities for anyplace pickup and drop-off.

Three Wheels United in partnership with Bykerr provides on-demand integrated smart electric auto rickshaws as first- and last-mile solutions to the metro with a one-time booking for an end-to-end ride.


Journee, an integrated ticketing and analytics solution that enables seamless multimodal integration through pre-booking services and optimized public transport operations based on real-time data.

The three winners of the challenge will receive a total financial grant of USD 50,000 to demonstrate their projects in the city. HMRL, LTMRHL and WRI India will also provide mentorship to all the teams for designing and implementing last-mile solutions, a HRML statement here said.
