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.

Meru Cabs today announced an exclusive partnership with Indian Oil Corporation Ltd, to allow people to share their ‘personal car’ ride with people traveling in the same direction—by using ‘Carpool By Meru’ integrated on ‘Meru Cabs’ mobile app.
Meru Cabs will now offer international travelers and Indian people alike, with a single app eCab, wherever eCab is operational (France, Belgium, Netherlands, Ireland, Canada, and now India). International travelers can use Meru Cabs services through their eCab mobile app while traveling to India.
CarPool offers the ‘Personal Car’ ride sharing option for people traveling in the same direction or area. All you need to do is register on the Meru app and Meru will do an elementary verification (driving license/PAN details) after which you can look up other registered members.
