Some may have missed the gossip. Others the relative peace and quiet of the office. But as India’s white-collar workers get ready to return to work, one thing is for sure: few will have missed the grind of the daily commute.
So with vaccination levels rising and offices and business parks tentatively returning to normal, Uber is happy to announce the launch of a new service that makes the journey to and from work for employees a breeze.
Uber Corporate Shuttle is a customised commute service with seating for anywhere between 10-50 employees in a single vehicle. Using Uber’s core technology, the service is a reliable, safe and cost-efficient way of getting employees to work.
It removes the stress and time suck of traffic jams and the cost and hassle of finding a parking spot. And by making it easy for people to give up their cars, the service can reduce congestion, pollution and emissions in our cities.
The service will be available across Delhi, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Chennai, Pune, Mumbai and Bangalore.
Safety is a top priority for Uber. Uber Corporate Shuttle includes a comprehensive set of safety measures, including a Go Online Checklist, a mandatory mask policy for both riders and drivers, pre-trip mask verification selfies for drivers and mandatory driver education on safety SOPs.
This is the first product from Uber’s High Capacity Vehicles program to be launched in India. It has been specifically developed keeping in mind the unique challenges faced by office-goers in India and other emerging markets. A significant share of the work related to the technology and product build-out for Uber Corporate Shuttle is being led by Uber’s technology team based out of Bangalore.
