  •  Tumakuru, Karnataka: Namma Yatri, the Bengaluru-based, community-led ride-booking app, announced its launch in Tumakuru today. Namma Yatri, part of the Open Network for Digital Commerce, aims to build a harmonious community of drivers and customers. It connects drivers directly with customers, ensuring direct and full payment. This will boost drivers’ income while delivering safe, convenient, and affordable rides to Tumakuru people.

This launch is set to modernize commutes in Tumakuru, and the city can become a role model for building community-led mobility solutions. Over 300 drivers have already joined the platform, showcasing significant interest from the community.

    Mr. Naveen Kumar, an auto-driver at Tumakuru and a Community ambassador, said, “Tumakuru is a smart city in need of digital transformation. Drivers want to give good service to customers. With doorstep pickups, it’s super convenient for customers. Customers can also share their feedback through the app which helps drivers to improve. The pricing is fair and complies with government guidelines. With Namma Yatri, drivers can earn more while customers pay less, and everyone reaches their destination faster and safer, making Tumakuru’s commute better for everyone.”

    Shan M S, Chief Growth Officer at Juspay said, “We are pleased to extend Namma Yatri’s services to Tumakuru and empower the local driver community. The overwhelming response from drivers underscores the app’s value proposition beyond Bengaluru. Our people-first, tech-driven approach enables us to tailor our services to the needs of Tumakuru residents. We are committed to working closely with the Tumakuru community to fully digitize the city’s mobility needs for a hassle-free and cost-effective way of moving around the city.”

    Digitizing mobility across India is pivotal to enhancing accessibility, affordability, and safety, contributing to overall economic development. With an existing community of 1 lakh drivers and 24 lakh customers, Namma Yatri is committed to expanding its services across Karnataka and beyond. Towards that goal, Namma Yatri invites driver communities in other cities and towns to take ownership and initiate launches to improve mobility in their areas.
