Cityflo, an app-based bus service that provides a commute experience for corporate professionals in Mumbai, has raised Rs 57 crore in Series A funding led by Lightbox Ventures.
Founded with the vision of solving the problem of long and stressful office commutes for professionals in our cities, the goal was to offer a commute option that is convenient, comfortable, and seamless. The startup is also working towards skilling drivers with regard to customer service etiquette, soft skills and grooming, among other aspects. It will also be launching a facility soon where bus drivers can park their buses at the end of the day to rest and recuperate.
“Cityflo’s customers are our number one priority. Tailored to our customers’ desires, our buses are air-conditioned BharatBenz buses with aesthetic interiors, ergonomic, reclining seats, and equipped with air-suspension for a smoother ride. We are changing the perception that buses are slower than cars by limiting the number of boarding points on our routes.” said Sankalp Kelshikar, Co-founder
