Freshbus, a Bengaluru-based EV bus startup, has secured Rs 26 crore in seed funding from ixigo (Le Travenues Technology Limited). With this, the company is looking to launch premium inter-city electric bus services across India. The service would commence simultaneously from Hyderabad and Bengaluru with the launch of 24 electric buses.
The operational routes would be announced by March. Founded by Sudhakar Reddy Chirra, who earlier built bus aggregator Abhibus (acquired by ixigo in August 2021).
