Tripda, a carpooling website, has launched its services in Chandigarh. This is the fourth city that the company will be operational in, just three months after its launch, as per a release. Tripda’s India operations are headquartered in New Delhi and has teams working in Mumbai and Pune.
According to Nitish Bhushan, Country Manager, Tripda, since Chandigarh is a tech-savvy city with high vehicle-ownership among students and young professionals, it was a natural choice for expansion, for both intra- and inter-city carpooling.
“We are thrilled with the response Tripda has received throughout the country so far. This makes us eager to expand our footprint to new geographies as soon as possible. Chandigarh is an ideal hub for both short-distance and inter-city carpooling. We are looking to target traffic within the Chandigarh region as well as to distant cities like Delhi, Ludhiana, Amritsar, and Shimla,” said Bhushan.
Tripda will be fostering partnerships with universities as well as corporate entities. Tripda will also be recruiting team members in the area to manage on-ground expansion efforts on a daily basis.
