Meru Cabs, India’s most trusted cab service today announced the launch of its world-class cab services in Belagavi.

Travelers will now have access to Meru’s reliable and affordable services through a click on the ‘Meru Cabs App’ or even via a call which provides cabs seamlessly. Beginning with 50 cabs on the launch day, they are looking forward to expanding to over 100 cabs in the coming months.


The entry of Meru in Belagavi is a welcome sign for the commuters of the city who have been harassed by the Auto-cracy.

Ola has recently increased its base fare to 99 for 4 kms which is very high and hence Meru as an option looks cheap and even cab can be booked by calling a number which makes it more friendly than only App based booking.

Only time can tell with the entry of Meru, how the scene of public transport in the city changes.

  1. Welcome to Belagavi Meru cabs
    The rates seem to be on higher side. Though base rate is Rs 39, rate per km of Rs 11 is on higher side.
    Both ola rates and Meru rate are almost same level.
    We expect Meru rates at reasonable level better than ola vabs

  2. We Need all sector FDI (Foreign Direct Investment) in belgaum and at the same time everyone one is our city needs to follow the discipline and work in the interest of development.
