The company plans to use the fresh capital for expansion, hiring and technology upgradation.
According to sources and reports by ET, Chief Operating Officer of OneWay.Cab – Devang Sanghvi, “After been funded, we expect to accelerate our growth in excess of 45-55% month-on-month”.
Commenting from investor point of view, Gupta said – “Digitalisation is transforming all industries and we have seen the impact of digital in intra-city travel. Inter-city taxi (service) is a much larger market in India and it requires a very different mindset, organisation and technology than intra-city.
