Cab service Meru has announced the launch of its new Ride-Share for the Delhi region.
Siddhartha Pahwa, Group CEO Meru Cabs, said, “Pollution and congestion are two major issues plaguing citizens of Delhi. We believe that the situation can be resolved through collaborative efforts by the government, private transport operators like Meru and citizens. As an environmentally responsible taxi operator, Meru endeavors to provide customers multiple transport options depending on their needs. By choosing to share your personal vehicle with the Carpool service or sharing a CNG fuel Meru Cab via Ride Share, citizens can now contribute to solving the city’s travel woes”.
Meru customers will be provided with an option of sharing their Meru Cabs ride with other co-passenger who intends to travel in the same direction. A fixed 30% discount on the estimated trip fare will be applicable and the customers will be charged a fixed fare which will be communicated to them before booking.
This feature will be applicable for bookings via Meru’s app and each rideshare trip can take a maximum of 2 bookings per ride with a maximum of 2 passengers per booking. The riders can share the location to the registered emergency contacts to ensure safety.
Earlier, the company had launched Carpool feature which allowed people to share their ‘personal car’ ride with people traveling in the same direction.
