Getting around in Delhi becomes much easier with Poochh-O (previously known as Pooch-O, Poocho) on your Android smartphone!
DIMTS has developed the Poochh-O mobile application.
The new version has additional features like
1) Rate your experience of hailing the trip on an Auto/Taxi.
2) View the rating of other commuters.
3) View autos/taxis with validated numbers.
Users of this app will now be able to see the location of autorickshaws and taxis near to them and phone in an auto directly on the auto driver’s mobile phone. .. It is no longer necessary to look out for an auto on the streets. With the new PoochO app, getting autos is a great deal easier now.
Apart from this, the application also provides information on the estimated fare, trip distance & travel time ─ all of these by the shortest route ─ as well as the traffic condition on the route
The gives the following information:
• Location of the Auto: Users can view the location of the autos nearest to them as well as the distance of the auto from the users’ location.
• Call the auto driver: Users can call the auto drivers directly on their personal mobile nos. and check if they are available to be hired.

• Send user location: Through the app the users can also send their location details to the auto driver if they are unable to explain where exactly they are waiting.
• Alternative routes: Using google maps users can also see alternative routes and the distance from origin to destination.

The application is currently available for Orange colored Delhi Transit buses, except for the Trip Planner and bus stop feature which gives data of the DTC bus routes also. The information for DTC operated buses for the rest of the features will be integrated into the application later.
The application has the following features:
• Occupancy Display: Gives tentative seat availability of the bus running on a route at a bus stop.
• Route Details: Shows the bus stops on the route and on clicking the bus stop, shows the ETA and tentative occupancy of the bus on that stop.
• Track location of a bus: Shows the real time location of the buses plying on the route on the map.
• Trip Planner: Shows the route and mode to take to reach from source to destination. This displays Orange and DTC buses route.
