The aim is to attain carbon neutrality at India’s largest airport, involving cooperation with all stakeholders.
Kunal Lalani, Founder and Chairman of MegaCabs, noted that MegaCabs, known for pioneering radio taxi services in India, is now embracing the next major shift in mobility: electrification. The company’s dedication to fair pricing has distinguished its services, and the introduction of an EV fleet is another distinctive feature that sets it apart from competitors. The initial phase involves deploying 100 EVs, with plans to increase this number to 300 by the end of the financial year.
MegaCabs remains committed to supporting DIAL’s mission of achieving net-zero emissions at the airport by 2030. Additionally, the company aims to expand sustainable transportation in other markets and align with India’s vision of becoming net zero by 2070.
