Launched by Raunak Gupta last year, the startup offers a multi-modal route planner in order to plan the journey of a user when he/she has exhausted all direct commutation options. It aggregates all possible linkages including cars, buses, trains and flights to facilitate the journey on the scheduled date. 

“It returns the best hundred paths in a fraction of second, after analysing millions of possible paths/itineraries, all in real-time and on current prices and schedules,” Gupta was quoted in the report as saying.

As of now, the site earns money on an affiliate basis. “The next step will be to make these point-to-point itineraries bookable. Right now we redirect to other sites, in one step; so the transaction happens only once which is actually much more useful in case of mobile,” he added.

The startup is also working on a mobile app for the Android platform, which should be out in a month.
