An alliance projecting reciprocal growth for both the parties
We are happy to announce an alliance with Jugnoo, a leading mobile app offering the largest network of auto-rickshaws in India. Our aim has been to empower daily mass transit mode travelers, to help them make the optimized travel decisions based on route, modes and times.
This partnership is aimed at reciprocal growth for both the parties. It not only boosts the services offered by Jugnoo and enhances its customer reach, but also adds an extra mode of transportation in the vehicle options on Zophop.
Elaborating on the collaboration, Samar Singla, Founder and CEO, Jugnoo commented, “Given their interest in a space where the customers can conveniently opt for the best travel routes, sources and fares, it is a great opportunity for Jugnoo to collaborate with Zophop. A synergy like this will certainly clout the service through our platform and add to our existing user base of a million.”
Vinayak Bhavnani, Co-founder and CEO, Zophop further commented, “Autos play a very important role in the entire public transportation experience as a quick and easy transportation mode within short distances at lower costs. This partnership with Jugnoo will certainly bring great value to Zophop users as now they can see availability, ETA, and fare of autos near their location with just one click. This eliminates the need for waiting and looking for autos on the streets as they can check out all this on their smartphones.”
Our customers now have an additional mode of transport to choose from, which is also cost effective, apart from cabs, metros, buses etc. The association enhances Jugnoo’s services, as the search results will be filtered and faster for any travel queries that people may have.
With steady expansion, Jugnoo is now operational in 22 cities in India. However after this association, over 200,000 Zophop users will gain access to Jugnoo in 8 cities viz. Chandigarh, Jaipur, Gurgaon/Delhi, Indore, Ahmedabad, Pune, and Nagpur.
Jugnoo, a Chandigarh based company, was established in the year 2014. It has ventured into the industry as one of the leading auto-rickshaw aggregators and the mobile commerce company with 15,000 people transacting per day, at a very nascent stage. It is a mobile app offering one of the largest networks of auto-rickshaws in India. It has more than 3,300 autos empanelled under the brand at present.
Founded by Samar Singla and Chinmay Agarwal, the company is targeting the students, working professionals, and masses that are dependent on public transport for their daily conveyance.
Zophop provides the tool that empowers daily travelers in 15 cities across India to make their best decision on route (time vs. cost), transportation modes, and time management for travel. One of the unique features on Zophop “Near You” allows users to find all public transportation modes including buses, trains, metros, cabs (Uber, Ola), and now autos via Jugnoo near their location. The “Near You” feature is not only showing users what is available around them but also its ETA (estimated time of arrival) to the stop/station/pickup location and fare. Zophop was established in Mumbai in 2014 founded by Vinayak Bhavnani and Jiyoung Lee.
