Gurgaon-based Shuttl, a bus-aggregator company claims to hit another milestone by, reaching its one millionth completed rides across Delhi-NCR in only 194 days of its operations. From being an intra-city to a pan Delhi-NCR public transit service, Shuttl has seen massive transformation. Shuttl has also been able to save Rs 5.10 mn per day in fuel cost for commuters, has kept 4,727 vehicles off the road daily and saved 53,460 tonnes carbon emissions till date during all it operational days. Currently, 50% of users board their Shuttl from Gurgaon, the business haven of NCR, 33% from Noida, and 17% from Delhi and rest of NCR.
Speaking on the occasion, Shuttl co-founder and CEO Amit Singh said, “It’s been a phenomenal ten months for the team. The public has embraced Shuttl beyond our expectations and the kind of growth we have achieved is remarkable. While we are excited about our performance to-date, there is much to be done in the coming months. Milestones like these are valuable but what really brings us joy is to see how we’re all waking up to the power that rests in our hands – the power to lead our cities to a healthier future by commuting wisely.”
With more than 60 routes already connecting Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida, Faridabad & Ghaziabad, Shuttl aims to become India’s favourite office-commute, offering a sustainable solution to counter all the difficulties associated with urban transit. Shuttl’s also been actively involved with Gurgaon police’s Car Free Tuesday initiative and the #OddEvenRule that was implemented earlier in January by the Delhi government.
Shuttl, which claims to be India’s largest bus-aggregating platform, aims to make daily commute more convenient for urban intercity travellers. The company is based out of Gurgaon and caters to the needs of commuters in the Delhi-NCR region with more than 15000 rides per day. Shuttl launched its tech-enabled platform in April, 2015. It received its first round of funding from Sequoia Capital and Angel investors, which helped them create a robust technology and bring more than 500+ buses to the platform. The platform generates an e-ticket for each user with a confirmed seat in the Shuttl. It is trying to solve the problem of young Indians looking for a smarter mode of commuting. The increasing traffic woes and pollution has led to the birth of Shuttl as a greener and smarter transport alternative.
