Ludhiana, January, January 29, 2015: The wait is over as we bring to you the most user friendly auto App. You need not wait at signals or haggle for a smooth auto ride. Thanks to Jugnoo, the mobile app for India’s first on demand auto rickshaw service, commuters can call for an auto ride with just a click on their phones. All users need to do is download Jugnoo, register with their email address and start using the service which is now available in Ludhiana.
With just a handful of Auto Rickshaws and services just in Chandigarh; the makers have come a long way already. The service is now available in the tri city with an expansion of its fleet to 100+ rickshaws and having the honor of serving more than 20,000+ rides since the launch. Expanding further the makers are launching App now in Ludhiana.
Jugnoo works by connecting commuters with the available auto rickshaws in the vicinity. Once a user has logged in, his exact location is pin-pointed on a map. When he requests for a ride, the nearest autos receive the request. They have 1 minute to respond before the request is sent to another set of auto drivers till the ride is accepted. The driver who accepts the ride is directed to the pick-up location. The passengers too can track the auto rickshaws location on the map in real time, estimate it’s time of arrival and can view the driver’s contact number, photograph, reviews etc.
The biggest benefit of using Jugnoo is that a passenger only pays the fare for the exact distance travelled. Jugnoo charges Rs. 20 for the first 2 kilometers and Rs. 4.8 per km after that, and 0.8/minute of ride time. In addition, Jugnoo has always been delighting the users through regular promotional discounts and offers. The app automatically tracks the distance of the ride and sends the calculated fare to the passenger via a message. Jugnoo is the one-stop solution to the issue of overcharging faced by the commuters.
Speaking at the launch of Jugnoo, Samar Singla, CEO of Jugnoo said, “After giving the benefit of economical and hassle free ride to the residents of Chandigarh; we realized to take the initiative forward and hence we are in Ludhiana today to launch the Application. We realized that the multitude of people travelling by autos ace issues like safety, tardiness, rude behavior, unavailability and unfair rates. The thought behind Jugnoo was to use technology and bring an app which can be used to call an auto anywhere, anytime with click of a button while ensuring that the rates are cheaper than the comparable rates charged by auto drivers in a locality.”
Any auto rickshaw driver of the city can become a member of the Jugnoo team and offer his independent services to commuters. Jugnoo already has close to 20,000+registered users in the tri-city area. The app can be downloaded from Google Play store or iOS store for free.
