Business Model – Plan to add food and taxi service leads generations, ads
Why OMitra : Every year 8.9 billion people travel in train and there is no platform for – social safely engagement/co-operation of co-yatri.
No easy way to share and follow trip of close family members.
Every vendor at the station or in the train misuses limited co-operation of co-yatri and gives substandard quality stuff/service.
5 – 50 hrs journey in train, so lots of idle time, with technology, it can be better utilised in networking or some basic task or survey or lot more other things.
Lots of problems/opportunities, but as a startup we have started with few of them and will add more in the future.
Railways asking not to interact with strangers and we are saying let’s remove the strangeness and enjoy the trip in a friendly environment.
OMitra developed Railway Security App (RiSSTA) with South Central Railways and RPF for Hyderabad local train. Here security assistance in 5 minutes guranteed.
Vision is to make a combination of the Instagram/ Facebook/ WhatsApp/ Tripit customize it as per train travel needs.
