Product/Service Summary

Roder is the next-generation transportation system focused on intercity travel.

Founded in 2014, Roder provides commercial cabs for intercity travel. Our USP of providing one-way rates for one-way intercity journeys helps users save upto 60% compared to market standards under which a user is charged for both ways.

We are building an intercity route backbone in India where people can hop between cities being assured of a well-maintained & documented cab, verified drivers, standardized pricing structure with no hidden costs and 24/7 customer support helpline.

Users can book a Roder from over 300 locations in India with our reach spreading from major metro cities (Delhi-NCR, Mumbai & Bangalore) to small Tier-2/3 towns (Agra, Dharamshala, Alibag, Chandigarh, Kasol, Ooty, etc).

Users can access Roder via website (, android app or by directly calling us at our 24/7 helpline number (8010440044). All the platforms are very user friendly with real-time chat feature available.

How are we different?

Roder is a technology company. We provide a reliable Roder with the help of in-house developed fare-generation, routing algorithms which take various factors into account.

With our operational presence in 25 cities across India, we provide a reliable intercity transport from over 300 location across operational territory by the virtue of routing algorithm.

We take all necessary steps to ensure legal compliance and steps to ensure safety of our passengers. Outstation taxi market is 99% unorganized and currently lies with local cab vendors and travel agents. This market has many problems to solve: use of private vehicles for commercial use, untrained drivers, unpredictable condition of vehicles and many more. We, at Roder have a strict policy against the above.

Our business principles has helped us maintain an operational efficiency of 98% (highest in the industry) and have maintained high quality service and best experience. The rides with low rating are <1% of total.
