Started by K Balaji in January 2015, Maa Ula is a bike-taxi service that is owned and run completely by differently-abled individuals
A bike-taxi service in Chennai that started in January 2015 has met with resounding success. What makes this service stand out is the fact that it is owned and run by differently-abled citizens!
Founded by K Balaji, Maa Ula derives it’s name from the Tamil words, ‘maatru thirunaaligal’ which translates to ‘differently-abled,’ and ‘ula‘ meaning ‘journey’.
In a bid to promote inclusivity and independence, the organisation hires only differently-abled individuals. “My life changed after I began doing this. I am much more comfortable with myself. I want to make others like me feel this way too,” said Balaji to The Quint
