Hyderabad, 18 Dec, 2023 - Hyderabad Auto & Taxi Drivers Association proudly introduces Yaary, India's pioneering ride booking app set to redefine the mobility landscape. Yaary stands out as India's pioneering driver-centric app, offering auto-hailing as its initial mobility service and a roadmap for additional services catering to the people of Hyderabad. Built on ONDC protocols, this unique platform prioritizes the empowerment of auto and taxi drivers by providing them complete control of their business, all while operating with zero commission.
Yaary has successfully onboarded over 20,000 auto and taxi drivers in Hyderabad and is actively collaborating with various driver associations across numerous cities, envisioning the launch of similar mobility apps. With an ambitious goal to onboard more than 100,000 drivers and serve over two million customers within the next six months across India, Yaary is poised to redefine the mobility landscape.
Setting itself apart, Yaary facilitates peer-to-peer transactions between customers and service providers (auto & taxi drivers) with 0% commission, charging only a nominal SaaS fee to service providers - 10 times less than traditional ride-hailing aggregators. This ensures a fair and transparent earnings model for drivers. Yaary provides drivers with flexible work schedules, a responsive support system, driver and family insurance, and legal consulting support - an industry first. The platform's commitment to driver welfare symbolizes a departure from existing models. For customers, Yaary promises a reliable, multi-modal mobility service at affordable prices, coupled with superior customer experience and efficiency.
To join Yaary, auto or taxi drivers can download the Yaary Partner app from the Play Store, completing a hassle-free KYC verification process involving their mobile number, RC, and driving license. Meanwhile, customers can download Yaary Ride on both Android and iOS devices, free of charge, via the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
Yaary effectively addresses the prevalent concerns among users and drivers, presenting a practical solution to issues like car unavailability, unreliable services, and excessive commissions levied by other ride-hailing platforms. Demonstrating a strong commitment to providing genuinely multi-modal mobility services, Yaary aims to eliminate the need for intermediaries for both its customers and ONDC network participants. Yaary has already established agreements with several metros nationwide, intending to streamline public transportation for consumers by offering diverse mobility services within a single app. This collaborative approach not only enhances the drivers' earning potential but also facilitates first and last-mile connectivity for consumers. Yaary envisions a future where transportation across cities, towns, or villages in India is smooth, cost-effective and time-efficient, delivering significant value to both customers and service providers on a large scale.
Koshy T, MD & CEO, ONDC (Open Network for Digital Commerce)
““ONDC is on a mission to democratize digital commerce and mobility is an important vertical. With support from DPIIT and MoRTH, our mission is to have this available across all tiers of cities. Launch of Yaary is a great step in expansion of ONDC Network's footprint to Hyderabad and we welcome a new network participant in this domain to join in driving mobility growth across the nation.”
Sujith Nair, CEO, FIDE (Foundation for Interoperability in Digital Economy)
“The Digital Public Infrastructure (DPI) for commerce operates much like the internet, and the foundational Beckn protocol from FIDE facilitates the nationwide launch of such population-scale DPI. Adopting a common standard, various buyer applications can provide mobility services to customers, creating an increased demand potential for service providers. ONDC, constructed on the Beckn protocol, will amplify this reach, particularly in collaboration with public transportation services like metros and buses, making it exceptionally valuable for consumers.”
Mallesh Goud, INTUC Auto Union, Hyderabad
“With Yaary, we are launching our own app with over 15,000 drivers signing up. Tired of aggregator models and high costs, drivers are seeking solutions that make them more independent and less dependent on third-party players. Yaary has been built for drivers, prioritizing our needs while empowering us to provide superior and reliable service to passengers. We believe that a happy driver equals a satisfied passenger, and we are committed to making this a reality.”

“Yaary is building for the drivers with the drivers. It has been developed with the core belief that the drivers who power the ride-hailing ecosystem deserve the utmost respect, support, and fair compensation. The platform is designed to prioritize the welfare of drivers, ultimately providing top-tier experience & reliability to passengers. Our mission here is to bring together a diverse set of mobility, travel & transportation players who can engage with the open network on their own terms. For Yaary, Hyderabad is just the beginning as we look to expand our footprint across India.”
