On the occasion of World Telecommunication and Information Society Day 2013, we are delighted to launch the first phase of our “Chandigarh Ecocabs – Dial a Rickshaw” project. As per 2011 census, out of the total 228276 household in Chandigarh, 59975 households have cars but interestingly 142853 have mobile phones. Real time infrastructure is 3 times compared with private transportation infrastructure. So, if you don’t own a car, you don’t need to worry, our chauffeur driven cycle rickshaw would come to your doorstep. All you need to do is go to website or download android app, select your sector and chose your favorite rickshaw
pilot to call at doorstep. This is how you can reduce the traffic burden of private vehicles and can help city to breath and move safely.
Phase – I : Since we are developing sector wise reliable rickshaw pilot’s database and we need your volunteer support for that.

About 25,000 cycle rickshaws are operational in the Chandigarh area, transporting 5 lakh passengers per day, and thus saving estimated 75,000 litres of fuel. 114 tones of fresh air would be required to burn that fuel, otherwise.
