Oddly even Delhi embraces a better way to commute

Oddly even Delhi embraces a better way to commute

Commuting in the capital city and around has always been a gamble. Traffic being the first bone of contention, followed by how so many cars on the road could be great for the environment.

But change doesn’t come easy.

So when it was first proposed the city huffed and it puffed.

And then it smiled.

The odd/even rule brought about a (not-so) surprising reaction. Who wouldn’t love a drive on open clean roads, reach office right in time for an easy cup of tea and generally feel good about oneself finally contributing to a healthier tomorrow?

And if you thought it wouldn’t get better than this, be ready to be pleasantly surprised.

We at Shuttl hope to make the second coming of odd/even oddly even better. (Please excuse the pun. We’re so excited!). We’re adding 31 more routes to an already existing 100 route offering. That is a brilliant 30% increase in routes!

All you need to do is leave your car behind, #TakeASeat and #ShuttlIt

Oddly easy. Even the critics would agree. Eventually.

Happy Shuttling to you.

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.

What’s the big deal about (quitting) cars?

What’s the big deal about (quitting) cars?

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:

  1. The problem: Are cars really as harmful as they say?

The seeds for a greener Delhi-NCR have been sowed!

The seeds for a greener Delhi-NCR have been sowed!

Shuttl’s been showered with a lot of love and happy feedback from you in the past few months. It’s proved to be both inspiring and heart-warming for us. So we decided to take to the streets of Gurgaon/Noida/Delhi in the first week of January and plant some more seeds of a greener love with you. If you weren’t there, here’s how it all went!

We’re all riding towards a healthier Delhi-NCR with fewer cars and safer commute. The smartest way to get to work is when you help your city breathe again and save money while you’re at it. We hope these saplings will remind you of us and empower you to keep on contributing towards a healthier city!

2015 was all about getting 10,000 skillful and focused professionals to work on time, everyday. For 2016, our plan is to make work-commute hassle-free for many more of you.

The future of public transport is here!

The future of public transport is here!

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!”
