AHA Taxis, an online aggregator for outstation travel, has raised an angel funding from venture fund, ah!Ventures.

Founded in April this year by five former IT professionals Amit Grover, Praveen Samariya, Kunal Krishna, Kumar Arayan and a college dropout and entrepreneur Shivam Mishra, the company plans to use the funds to invest in technology, marketing and operations.

AHA Taxis helps travellers save cost on outstation travel by charging only for actual kilometres travelled instead of taxi owners charging a return fare from customers even for one way trips, as they are not assured of passengers on return journey. The start-up is present in over 100 cities and plans to expand to another 100 cities by mid-2016.

Amit Grover, Founder, AHA Taxis, said, “Taxi sector has been developing by leaps and bounds in India, with Ola and Uber serving local travel, we felt that there is a gap in outstation travel which needs to be addressed by using technology and marketing,”

AHA Taxis plan to expand to newer geographies, with a focus on tier 2/3 towns, and start coverage of non-tourism sector beyond usual routes like Delhi to Jaipur, Agra, Haridwar and Chandigarh.
