Trivandrum: The taxi cars run by Kudumbashree Travels can now be booked online and through mobile apps. VST Travel Solutions, a startup floated by a bunch of youngsters and incubated at KSIDC’s Startup Zone at Angamaly, is behind the new application ‘VehicleST’.
K G Girish Babu, CEO of Technopark flagged off the first taxi services of Kudumbashree taxi with VehicleST app today at a function held in Thiruvananthapuram in the presence of Kudumbashree Taxi and auto drivers who have registered with Vehicle ST.
In his comments, Girish said the App will be much useful for the Technopark employees. He also appreciated the facility in the app for review and rating of services, which will help customers to choose better services.
Abdul Gafar, District Mission Coordinator of Kudumbashree said the new app would help Kudumbashree taxi services to get more customers and thereby higher revenues.
Alwin George, CEO of VST said the tie-up with Kudumbashree is aimed at providing better and safer services to women passengers.
Another important feature of this application is that users can rate and review services based on the quality of services provided. To begin with, the VST Travel Solutions’ application will be available in Thiruvananthapuram, Kochi and Thrissur. The company plans to expand its services across the State by tying up with Akshaya Kendras.
In addition to taxi cars, the VehicleST application can be used to book autos, tourist buses, flight tickets, ambulances, bulldozers, recovery vehicles and other emergency services. The application can also be used for finding the nearest service station if a vehicle breaks down or a tyre gets punctured.
The application which is now available on Google Play will soon be available in iOS and Windows.
