We remain committed to simplifying public transport further through constant innovation," Hiranmay Mallick added.

Looking at the problems, Tummoc is aiming to create an ecosystem covering buses, metros, autos, bikes, and other private riding services, to provide a cheap and hassle-free traveling experience for daily commuters.
