“While the existing taxi and auto ride aggregators operating in Kerala charge a commission of 25% to 36% per ride, we are offering the service at a rate of 0%. The service will be absolutely free for the first four months after which we will charge a subscription rate of Rs 750 per month.

Around 1,200 drivers have signed up for the app and initially the service will focus on Ernakulam district,” he said. Mathew James is a cloud architect with 20 years of experience and the startup has a team of technologists with 15 years of experience in the software industry.
