About Chalo:

Chalo is a mobility start-up that aims to make travel better for everyone. With operations in 25+ cities and 250 million rides delivered each year, Chalo is solving a real-world problem that affects crores of Indians every day and creating India's largest mobility company along the way.

How Large Is The Problem?

Transport is the largest spend category for an average Indian household after food expenses, accounting for 20% of all expenses. Bus tickets account $60 billion annually, and are estimated to be 10x of taxis. However, each bus commuter spends the equivalent of 8 days a year waiting for a bus; and bus operators have losses running into hundreds of millions of dollars annually.

What Does Chalo Solve?

Chalo is improving the city bus experience. With live bus tracking on the Chalo app, commuters have reduced their 30 minutes wait to just 2-3 minutes.Plus, with the Chalo Card and mobile tickets, they never have to worry about carrying change anymore, and can save money with each trip. This kick starts a virtuous circle, where happier commuters means more rides which in turn means more revenue for our bus operator partners, which leads to more investments in buses, and thus even better services for commuters.

How Does Chalo Do It?

Chalo works in partnership with bus operators to deploy their proprietary technology stack and operations. By deploying an end-to-end solution from the hardware on the bus, to the software on the cloud, and mobile apps and cards for the commuter, Chalo is able to power a unique experience.

What's In Store for 2020?

Chalo believes that buses run better on technology than on fuel. Chalo is all set to launch their service in some of India's largest cities, and is working closely with city governments and bus operators to add more buses, especially electric buses.
