With an aim of working with various taxi operators and enabling them with technology to ensure that customers get an easily accessible, safe, reliable taxi ride ‘for sure’,
TaxiForSure, India’s largest taxi-aggregator, announced the launch of their operations in Ahmedabad with an exciting offer of Rs. 99 to travel from anywhere to anywhere in Ahmedabad.

After having successfully marked its presence in cities of Bangalore, Chennai, New Delhi and Hyderabad, the consumer-friendly cab aggregator today began its Ahmedabad operations with a flagging-off ceremony by its founders Raghunandan G and Aprameya R. TaxiForSure.com, which is a brainchild of these two IIM Ahmedabad graduates, began operations from June 2011 in Bangalore. The cab aggregator recently completed three years of successful operations. In just a short time span of over three years the company has crossed over one and a half million transactions and it has now launched its operations in Ahmedabad. The founders aim to be “THE” taxi player in the country making every possible quality option for taxis readily available, across India. Under its rapid expansion plans, TaxiForSure aims to establish itself in 20 cities by 2015.

Commenting on the Ahmedabad launch, Co-Founder and Director, Aprameya Radhakrishna said, “TaxiForSure.com has a strong presence in the emerging cab rentals and taxi booking space and with a successful model already up and running in four cities, we are now looking to revolutionize the Ahmedabad taxi market. With our on-ground knowledge of the taxi industry across geographies and ability to scale operations at a rapid pace while ensuring customer service, we are confident of becoming the first choice for every user who wants to book a taxi in Ahmedabad. We want to make every Amdavadi use a taxi for every need. To encourage the habit, we have launched with a special offer of a flat rate of Rs 99 to go from anywhere to anywhere in Ahmedabad – whether it is to the airport, railway station, office or for shopping.”

TaxiForSure.com would be one of the first players to introduce end-to-end technology enabled taxi services in Ahmedabad. TaxiForSure now promises to offer services like airport and railway station transfers and outstation trips at best rates in Ahmedabad City. The founders believe that a consumer deserves a better way to choose from vast available taxi options and does not need to call two to three operators in the hope of getting the right taxi when they need one. They aim to provide customers a more optimized experience across their phone, app and website. At TaxiForSure, decent rates are available with all kinds of operators, international or local, along with a varied fleet of cars for commuters to choose from. The entire booking process on their apps is integrated with Google Maps product and is user friendly, transparent, easy and quick.
