Product/Service Summary

TYGR app is an universal​ passenger transport market place, connecting traditional medallion cabs/ auto rickshaws/ bike taxis ​/ bus services ​with their passengers.

As millions of legacy passenger transporter and fleet owners globally are facing existential crisis from the new private aggregating players ( like UBER, OLA and Lyft), TYGR helps these old world carriers upgrade to the same new-age technology that is used by the new unicorns and compete with them using the same tools that have made the new entrants popular recently, all the while retaining their freedom and control over their own supply chain and payments.
