About DriveU

Bangalore-based DriveU was launched in July 2015 with the vision to offer a technology-driven, on-demand, affordable driver service for private cars. The startup brings together customers with their own vehicles who need a trusted driver. Uniformed partner-drivers equipped with seat covers, and floor mats arrive at a customer’s doorstep to drive them around the city and beyond. It lets customer focus on their life, rather than struggle with traffic jams and parking woes. One can travel in the comfort of her own car and not experience the anxiety of not being able to hail public transport or taxi during inclement weather and rush hour.

This strategic approach along with cutting-edge technology ensures that DriveU customers get an accessible, safe, transparent and economical ride every time. Customers utilize DriveU on-demand drivers for both intra and inter-city travel - such as daily office commute, shopping, running errands, business meetings, drink-n-drive, attending social events, weddings, parties and concerts, Airport drops and pick-ups and weekend getaways.

DriveU is operational in Bengaluru, Mumbai, Chennai, Delhi NCR and Pune. DriveU has over 1,000 driver-partners on its platform and expects to double by the end of 2016. DriveU has completed over 70,000 trips to date.

Zoomcar allows the user to rent cars by the hour, day, week or month. Founded in 2013 and headquartered in Bengaluru, its service is presently spread across 12 cities. Its vehicle catalogue offers a wide and extensive variety of cars for self-drive in India, ranging from hatchbacks to SUVs to luxury vehicles at all-inclusive prices that include the cost of fuel, insurance and taxes.
