Unlike so many taxi aggregators, Zuver is a start-up that addresses a di erent need: Car owners who occasionally need the service of a driver. Zuverlassig is the German word for “reliable”—and that’s what they promise you: a reliable, skilled, well-trained ‘driver on demand’ at your doorstep. After Mumbai, the service has just started in Pune. You can book a driver in advance or real time for an hour, or for a whole day. e service locates and dispatches the driver who is positioned closest to the customer, within 40 minutes. You can nd a driver by using the iOS or Android app “Zuver Driver on Demand”. You can also contact the service on phone: +91 2243686868. With 100 drivers on their network in Mumbai, Zuver has so far signed up 25 drivers in Pune and has also extended its reach to Bengaluru. Started in early 2016 by Sovin Hegde, a Harvard alumnus and Sidhanth Mally, a Kings College London alumnus, Zuver says it ensures that each driver undergoes multiple rounds of interviews, tests and agency checks so that the customers can be reassured while handing over their car to Zuver’s driver.
