There are times when using public vehicles becomes too tiresome after a heavy day’s work and hiring a cab leaves a hole in your wallet. Well, that’s where Let’s Ride comes in.
Rajkumar Mundel, the co-founder and CEO of Let’s Ride, faced a lot of problems while commuting from his place to his office in Bangalore. He then started brainstorming and thinking about ideas that would solve the problem of traffic that one faces and also help in reducing the amount of money one pays while travelling from one place to another.
Let’s Ride enables the commuters to get in touch with the people who share the same route. All that they have to do is sign up and enter their details and then follow the people who share the same routes from home to office and vice versa. This allows the people to share rides and helps them save time and money. Also, ride-sharing has its own share of benefits to the ecosystem – reduced traffic, fuel consumption and illnesses caused due to air pollution; a one stop solution for all – Let’s Ride!
The team comprises of Rajkumar, Averi Pal Choudhari and Praveen S Mane; all of whom had one dream and that was to change the traffic scenario of Indian roads.
This startup is more of a social initiative with a business model to help local markets to get connected to people who live nearby. Also, through User Verification, they motivate the car owner to share rides and earn money.
Unlike competitors, they don’t charge the commuters or take a commission. They make money by verifying users, through local market ads and advertising magazines and brochures inside cars.
