About Us

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'

Meru’s journey began in 2000, when its founder, Mr. Neeraj Gupta established a Staff Transportation business under the name ‘V-Link’ with a single bus contract with Tata Infotech Ltd. What started out as a humble beginning was soon to revolutionize mobility in India. More

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

Shaping the Meruscape

History was made, and so, the first fleet of the nation’s modern Radio Cabs headed out to conquer the ride hailing market in India from bustling streets of Mumbai. More

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!
