COVID-19 is affecting more than two and a half hundred people in the country at the time of the outbreak, with cab companies constantly sending notifications and messages to keep users safe and clean.
Ola Gadgets 3 (360) said in a statement (translated): “In our efforts to prevent the transmission of Covid-19, we are temporarily suspending the ‘Ola Share’ option until further notice. “
Ola has completely removed the app sharing option. However, users can still book other cab options such as Micro, Mini, Prime and Exx. The company has also continued its rental and exit options.
Like Olar, Uber isn’t taking bookings on its platform pool ride, but the option is visible on the pool.
Also on Saturday, Ola announced a coverage of Rs 30,000 for its driving partners and their spouses affected by COVID-19. In addition, compensation of one thousand rupees per day has been promised for a maximum of 21 days. The company has partnered with online driver consultation application MyFine to provide free medical assistance to its driver partners and family members.
