ABOUT CHALO Chalo is a mobility start-up that aims to make travel better for everyone. With operations in 25+ cities
and 250 million rides delivered each year, Chalo is solving a real-world problem that affects crores of
Indians every day and creating Indias largest mobility company along the way. How Large Is The Problem?Transport is the largest spend category for an average Indian household after food expenses,
accounting for 20% of all expenses. Bus tickets account $60 billion annually, and are estimated to be
10x of taxis. However, each bus commuter spends the equivalent of 8 days a year waiting for a bus;
and bus operators have losses running into hundreds of millions of dollars annually. What Does Chalo Solve? Chalo is improving the city bus experience. With live bus tracking on the Chalo app, commuters have
reduced their 30 minutes wait to just 2-3 minutes.Plus, with the Chalo Card and mobile tickets, they
never have to worry about carrying change anymore, and can save money with each trip. This kick
starts a virtuous circle, where happier commuters means more rides which in turn means more revenue
for our bus operator partners, which leads to more investments in buses, and thus even better services
for commuters. How Does Chalo Do It? Chalo works in partnership with bus operators to deploy their proprietary technology stack and
operations. By deploying an end-to-end solution from the hardware on the bus, to the software on the
cloud, and mobile apps and cards for the commuter, Chalo is able to power a unique experience. What's In Store for 2020? Chalo believes that buses run better on technology than on fuel. Chalo is all set to launch their service
in some of India's largest cities, and is working closely with city governments and bus operators to add
more buses, especially electric buses. More..
The benefits of providing a great mobility solution go beyond time and money. A bus can take 30 cars
off the road, reduce millions of tonnes of emissions, improve safety, increase household savings and
lead to a significant improvement in the quality of everyday life. The opportunity to build a company
comes along rarely; the opportunity to build a company that can so dramatically impact the lives of
millions, comes once in several lifetimes. If that opportunity does come knocking, you better be
prepared to grab it with both hands and then give all of yourself to it. We will be frank, lots of things are
work-in-progress at Chalo, but thats exactly why we are looking for individuals to take up challenging
roles across the company to not just run, but solve, build and grow Chalo.
