WiFi Enabled Taxi Service GoCarz Shuts Down After Running Out Of Funds

Radio taxi operator GoCarz, which had tied-up with Airtel to offer free WiFi in their cabs, has shut shop.

That being the case, Wi-Fi is something we would like to see more companies offer. The competition now seems to have focused on mobile apps of these companies since the launch of Uber in India.

Thank you, once again, for supporting our cause as a driver, a customer, an employee, an investor or as a friend.
