When Uber first launched, it stated that the aim of the service was to introduce transportation that worked as seamlessly as running water. This seemed like a Herculean task at first but we have seen this service dominate markets and spread like wildfire. Now Uber is worth over $60 billion and counting. The Uber business model has been adopted by various business and we have seen interesting variants of the rideshare business.
Rideshare is becoming more popular and other transport modes besides cars are being introduced. To ensure seamless transportation; bikes, trucks, and even rickshaws are being used to simplify transportation. In densely populated countries like India and China, bikes and rickshaws are being used to decongest roads and reduce carbon footprints
To learn how auto rickshaws are improving India’s transportation system, we will shed light on auto rickshaw aggregator, Jugnoo.
