AutoRaja Files

It’s not an uncommon sight in the city to see students crammed into an autorickshaw! While AutoRaja provides a metered, safe, and comfortable rides to students of schools and colleges alike, we weren’t ready (almost!) for the overwhelmingly cheerful response we received from college students at an event last month. AutoRaja was the college’s travel partner for a cultural festival. And indeed, we and our Rajas enjoyed every bit of our service at the event!

The day for us started at around noon and ended 7 hours later in exhaustion and utmost satisfaction. The joy at seeing all our happy customers in one place, and to have provided auto drivers – an ostracised lot – the experience of a lifetime, of receiving love from and spending a jolly time with students – was simply boundless!

We hope to repeat the stunt in more colleges and schools across the city. If you are an organiser, you know whom to contact!

Almost a year and a half after our launch in 2013, AutoRaja stands today as the earliest and the largest call auto service in Chennai. This post is to share and celebrate with you all the launch of our WhatsApp service – the first in the Autorickshaw booking space ever!

WhatsApp Auto

 

AutoRaja, operating in the Indian market - in a country with the third largest Facebook population globally, third largest Internet users – and our own customers visiting the AutoRaja website over their Android devices, we felt it was high time we launched a new channel to book autos, and ultimately provide a new, unique customer experience.

We should soon be back in this space to share our learnings from the “WhatsApp-an-Auto” exercise.

Share your thoughts, peeps!

 

Time to Evolve

Our About Us section presents the genesis of AutoRaja. It was in fact a little over two years back that one of the founding members of the organisation was engaged in profiling the lives and auto-rickshaw operations of drivers in Chennai. Soon, in late 2010, a larger study proving to be the first of its kind in India was conducted by Chennai City Connect.[1] Read more

The Commuter’s Plight

Auto-rickshaw drivers are ubiquitous public servants! Yes, you read that right. With over 1 lakh[1] of them just in the Chennai Metropolitan Area and professing to take you to any nook and corner of the city and its outskirts, autos play a crucial role in transportation. It cannot be denied either that most of the city loves to dislike drivers; even those that are on a short visit to the city are warned of the all-true fleecing nature of drivers. Read more
