At Shuttl, we always balance work and play & this time we decided to launch our own cricketing league a-la IPL style! We have had sports days before, but we added days of meticulous planning & a gradual build up to this cricket-specific league called Shuttl Premier League (SPL). Player auctions were scheduled a week before the tournament, and captains were assigned. They were given a chance to choose their own team, subject to a budget cap of virtual money. Each player was worth a certain amount of that virtual money which was decided on the basis of the self-assessment of the players. A high energy auction followed, which involved a lot of cross-bidding and high-intensity, competitive negotiations, something that comes naturally to Shuttlrs.
The week that followed was full of excitement, with newly made teams using chai breaks to strategize. Since most of the cricket teams were across the various functional teams in Shuttl, a lot of new bonds were formed. Sledging was taken to a level that would put the Australian cricket team to shame 🙂

Even before turning one, Shuttl has completed 1 million successful rides across Delhi-NCR in a record 194 days only! A BIG Thank You to each and everyone of you!
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.
It’s gratifying to see the Shuttl community evolve from an intra-city to a pan Delhi-NCR public transit service. Currently, 50% of our users board their Shuttl from Gurgaon, the business haven of NCR, 33% from Noida, and 17% from rest of Delhi NCR.

All this noise about Delhi govt’s recent #OddEven rule could leave anyone with a sane mind, well, confused!
If you go through http://www.oddevenbyshuttl.com/ , you’ll see that we’ve been looking at the new policy, and more importantly at the underlying monstrous problem from a completely logical stand-point. By observing world trends as closely as the local ones, we’ve made sure to keep your personal point of view central to our study.
By applying a bottom-up approach to our research, we’re analysing the problem rather than merely analysing the solutions. We’ve divided our observations into 4 broad points and they’re as follows:
The problem: Are cars really as harmful as they say?

If you feel that commuting to work every day is the worst thing about having a job then you’re not alone. Our co-founder, Amit Singh agrees with you and so do a majority of other talented professionals of a young and thriving India.
Did you know that cars carry only 3% of the total population of a city yet occupy 200% of the space on roads! Buses, on the other hand, are the most space AND cost efficient mode of transport available to us. But they aren’t smart enough.
By making public transport smarter, Shuttl is improving the way we commute. Imagine your city sans traffic jams and pollution – we’re making it happen!
Operational in Delhi-NCR, currently Shuttl takes 10,000 people to work every day on 15,000 comforting, safe and affordable rides plying on 60+ routes. What’s better is that you can get a new route rolling by using the ‘suggest route’ option on the Shuttl App. Continue reading “The future of public transport is here!”
