New Delhi, July 13 (ANI): Trainman, the online platform catering to Indian Railway travelers by assisting them with various train related information and intelligence, has tied up with Jugnoo, India's leading on-demand auto-rickshaw aggregator. The tie up will enable passengers to book auto-rickshaws while travelling to and from their respective railway stations, using the Trainman mobile app. The service will be made to users of Trainman mobile app in 35 cities where Jugnoo is currently operational.

By virtue of this tie-up, Trainman users searching for auto rickshaws will now be introduced to a 'Book an Auto' button on the home menu of the Trainman mobile app. Upon clicking this icon, the commuter will be able to see all nearby Jugnoo backed auto rickshaws that are available within a fixed periphery, with the estimated time of arrival (ETA) for the closest auto. On clicking 'auto icon', they will be linked to the Jugnoo mobile application, whereby they would be able to book an auto immediately. This feature is available on Trainman android app as of now.

Speaking on the association, Vineet Chirania, Director and CEO - Trainman said, "It is very common for train travelers to seek transport to and from railway stations to their respective drop points. Many travelers see this as a pain-point, and the rationale behind establishing Trainman has always been to be an enabler that addresses such pain-points. Our association with Jugnoo is a step forward in the same direction. We believe that this integration will ease the process for travelers and provide them a seamless experience whilst move from point A to point B via auto-rickshaws."

Talking about the tie-up, Samar Singla, Founder and CEO, Jugnoo said, "We are happy to associate with Trainman for auto-rickshaw bookings to and from railway stations. While our organic user base is fast expanding, we look forward to more brand associations to cater to the masses making the hailing process seamless and easier for them. Our tie-up with Trainman is in line with our vision to expand our customer outreach. Trainman will be directing its users to the Jugnoo app whenever they seek auto-rickshaw transport, thereby increasing our reach amongst the addressable target group. It's a win-win situation for everyone."
