About Us

There has been continuous effort from Governments across states to tackle the burning issue of women safety as well as women empowerment, independently, but with little or no success. It is very rare to see an individual taking this sensitive issue upon him to drive a change in society. And receiving all the admiration are three men, each in different profession, who are trying to bring change and give assurance to the "So called weaker" gender.

The concept of Women Operated Taxi Services, Angel city Cabs was conceived by these three men as an answer to these crucial aspects of society. Started by Advocate Surya Mukundaraj, Businessman Vinay Chaitanya and a Journalist and Social Activist Manjunath Adde, their aim was to create a safe environment for women, not only to those who travel in and around city, but also to provide livelihood with dignity. It also aims at leveling the employment field for urban disadvantaged women by developing new and bold livelihoods options that enhance women economic status, dignity, and decision-making within their families.

Initial drive

Initial drive has certainly not been easy. Before streamlining the concept, we discussed the idea with few people to get their views however the responses were not positive because of the recent attacks on women at every nook and corner of the country. On the other side, we were also determined to bring a change in the society. Although we had several questions in our mind, the initial and important task was to get the attention of women to drive a taxi. So step one was to propagate and put up flex boards. Surprisingly we received about 50 calls per day. Around 25 women were shortlisted and finally zeroed on eight.

Safety first

Angel Cab Service has been operating since August '2013 however all the safety measures were adopted well in advance to ensure safety of both drivers and passengers . Safety has been the first priority.

  • GPS systems are installed in every cab.
  • Panic buttons has been fixed.
  • Cabs are being tracked live.

Towards change

One of the purpose of Angel City Cab is to ensure empowerment of women, therefore our drivers will be trained with free of cost. Women are sole bread-winners for many families and have immensely helped to improve the financial conditions of their family. Each lady chauffeur will be paid a monthly salary ranging between `8,000 to `10,000. Initial plan is to start services between 5 am to 11 pm on shift basis later the services will extended to 24 hours.Women drivers are also given the chance to drive their own cabs thus becoming owners and drivers with Angel City Cabs.
