Trainman

With 10 million+ downloads and transactions worth US$ 9M (Rs.66 crore) we have built a strong and large community and have helped 8 billion annual travellers in making informed decisions in booking their journey via our train waitlist prediction feature.

Trainman is a one-stop solution for your Train worries. Official Train Booking Partner of IRCTC.

Sectors: CONSUMER TECH


We are now building to disrupt the tier-2 and tier-3 travel market just like social commerce apps (Meesho, Glowroad, Mall91) disrupted the traditional e-commerce space.

PROBLEM STATEMENT:

We do not have direct competition with B2C portals like MMT or Easemytrip. We are competing with local travel agents who now do the bulk of offline bookings.

COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE:

Bharat users are not able to do travel booking. The primary factor is their inability to understand or trust online platforms that do not communicate with them in a language they are comfortable with. Over 400 Mn Indians have never transacted online despite being on the internet. 52% of entire travel booking (~$38B) still happens offline and the market is very fragmented.
