Decision taken to check the spread of COVID-19 India’s two biggest app-based aggregator cab services, Uber and Ola, have decided to suspend their ride-sharing option — Uber Pool and Ola Share — in the light of the rising cases of COVID-19 in the country. “We are determined to help reduce the spread of coronavirus in the cities we serve. With that in mind, we are suspending the Uber Pool service across India. In line with the Government advisory, we urge people to stay safe and discourage non-essential travel.
On account of Janata Curfew on Sunday, Uber has said "it would offer services to meet essential requirements but urged people to observe the curfew. In line with the Government’s advisory, we urge riders to observe the ‘Janata Curfew’ on Sunday, March 22. However, we will offer services to meet the essential and urgent travel needs of the communities we serve,” the company spokesperson said.
