Speaking on the partnership, Vivekananda Hallakere, Co-Founder & CEO, Bounce states that the brand’s objective is to have their battery swapping stations to be within one kilometer of wherever you are, and to enable this, Bounce has partnered with Park+.

Amit says that Park+ is committed to scaling up charging infrastructure at a rapid pace through its network of solutions across corporate parks, shopping malls, and residential apartments.
