TaxiForSure has launched their new category of Nano taxis. The service has been launched with 100 Nanos in Bangalore and will be expanded to other Indian cities in the coming weeks.
The Nano service will be available exclusively on the TaxiForSure app and mobile site in the ‘Pick Now’ option. The service will be priced at Rs. 25 for the first 2 k.m. and Rs. 10 / km after that.
The service competes with Uber’s ‘UberGO’ feature which provides hatchback cabs at prices comparatively cheaper than hiring an auto rickshaw and Ola’s auto rickshaws inventory.
A sort of revival for Nano, which has struggled to create a demand?
Aside, here is why TaxiForSure is doing it, i.e. focus on shorter distances.
- Always round the corner : You’ll find a Nano always with-in a radius of 3 kms.
- Prompt : It takes around 15 minutes for a Nano to arrive once you press Pick Now on the App.
- Pocket-Friendly : Rs. 25/2km and Rs. 10/km after that. No night charges and waiting charges.
- Ideal for short distances : It’s small, arrives promptly, cuts through traffic, and costs incredibly less. Need we say more?
