RECENTLY V-LINK, a leading fleet management company, launched Meru, a
world-class metered radio taxi service in Mumbai. Initially, there will
be 150 taxis and by the end of the year, the company hopes to have
1,000 cabs on the road. The company is planning to manage a fleet of at
least 10,000 cabs across the major metros of the country in the next
three to five years. The initial platform to deliver the Meru service
will be through the Maruti Esteem vehicle. All taxis will be
air-conditioned, fitted with electronic meters and printers.
