Trend of Sharing cabs is still less in Hyderabad

As per a national survey conducted by a leading cab service, most commuters in the city are reluctant to share cabs with others.

In a move to reduce the pollution and traffic jams in the metropolitan cities, Ola came up with “Farak padta hai” campaign two years ago to promote share rides but it didn’t see any growth in Hyderabad. Same is the case in both Visakhapatnam and Vijayawada. Even Delhi comes under this section.
But Bengaluru, Mumbai, Pune, Chennai and Kolkata have embraced the concept.
According to the cab aggregator, there has been a 60% rise in sharing cabs by office-goers in the last one year in other metros, while it has gone up to 70% among those waiting at bus stops, railway and metro stations.
Pallav Singh, senior vice-president of Ola, said, “We are encouraging people to go for shared mobility and make it a normal form of commute. From June 5, we have started a week-long offer in Hyderabad and six other cities where people can book free rides from the mass transit points.”
