In a recent event, the company acquired Vogo to expand its 2W market. Vogo was co-founded by Anand Ayyadurai, and Padmanabhan Balakrishnan, and backed by investors like Matrix Partners, Stellaris Venture Partners, and Ola.
The company is headquartered in Bengaluru. Vogo will be the credential partnership for Chalo’s bus technology services by offering first and last-mile rides at bus stops and other public places.
As stated by Chalo, “ This will enable crores of bus users to easily travel to and from bus stops, and further boost bus ridership as it becomes more convenient to take a bus.”
In my opinion, I am very supportive of the brand. As it is from my home town and the products are also designed to cool with a warranty of 1 year. the features are supportive and expanding the market to provide more comfort and ease to commute solutions for the customers.
