Bangalore, Apr 8 (UNI) V-Link Taxis today announced the launch of 'Meru', a metered radio taxi service in Bangalore with deployment of 500 'Logan' air-conditioned vehicles.
George Thomas, Partner if India Value Fund, which has invested in the V-Link Taxis, told newspersons here that out of 500 taxis, 400 would be dedicated to the Bengaluru International Airport (BIA) which begins operations on May 11.
All Meru cabs would be fitted with electronic meters and printers and would use GPS-based technology to enable real-time location and dispatch. These taxis were priced at Rs 15 per km as prescribed by the Karnataka government, he said.
The company has already launched its operations in Delhi and Hyderabad last month. It was first launched in Mumbai last year and had received very good customer response, he said.
"We are in unique position to expand our radio taxi business across India as we have gained tremendous experience in the demanding Mumbai market over the last year," he said.
Meru was modeled on the best cab services in the world like Singapore and London. "What private airlines have done to invigorate air travel in India, Meru intends to do with cab services," Thomas added.
