It might seem that India already has too many on-demand taxi services: Uber, Ola, TaxiForSure … So one more may seem like too many. But when you look at the large numbers of people in the metros who still struggle to find taxis in peak hours, the many cities which still don’t have the new smartphone-based cab services, and the congested roads which discourage people from taking out their own cars, you begin to see that the gap has hardly been filled.
Zoomcar was founded by Americans Greg Moran and David Back in Bangalore last year. Among its first backers was Lawrence H. Summers, former president of Harvard University.
