On Oct 1 2013, when we beta launched our call auto service, the mGaadi network had 300 auto rickshaw drivers. On Dec 12, when we released our Android app, the number jumped to 500. Two months and 3 days later (i.e. today), that number has doubled. Sometime this afternoon, we crossed the 4-figure mark and are now sitting at 1005. Yes – that is 1,005 auto rickshaw drivers in the mGaadi network.
In the recent past, we’ve been keeping a low profile on the customer outreach front, largely to manage the trip fulfillment rate (trips fulfilled/trip requests). With the driver enrollments and fulfillment rates at healthy levels, we’ll start a broader push towards new customer enrollments.
Many other exciting updates so please keep reading on.
