Not to brag, but Meru initiated the ride- hailing revolution in India where customers could easily have an AC cab at their doorstep with a single call. This goes way back in time when the black and yellow taxis (Kaali-peeli taxis) largely dominated our city roads.
Story of 'Firsts'

By the year 2006, V-Link became the Largest Staff Transportation Company in India with a fleet of over 1500 vehicles across 7 cities. A year later, Meru was launched with the first fleet of cabs integrated with electronic meters and GPS/GPRS systems. Less

Funded by India’s premiere private equity fund True North (Formerly known as India Value Fund Advisors), Meru pioneered ‘ride-hailing’ services in the country. It became an iconic brand that was the talk-of-the-town and soon expanded its services to the top 4 cities of India with a fleet of 5000 taxis. Meru was an instant hit!
