Chennai’s first bike taxi service run by people with disabilities
May 17, 2017
Maa Ula is the name of Chennai's first bike taxi service that is run entirely by people with disabilities.
Chennai's Balaji and Mohammad Gadaffi came up with the idea of this venture and started it in January 2016. Due to their physical impairments, the two were finding it hard to earn their livelihood.
The two are running the business successfully now and have another eleven people with disabilities working with them.
The bike taxi now has some regular customers and their popularity is slowly growing.
Balaji has a Bachelors in Business Administration and feels that even education cannot always help people with disabilities get jobs.
