Ola, Uber in support of Delhi Government’s Odd-Even Scheme

Share This Post

Surge Pricing will not be resorted to during the 12- day odd-even road rationing scheme starting from November 4 by the cab aggregators Ola and Uber.

In a statement, Ola said that it would extend its support to the Delhi government’s initiative. The implementation of the odd-even rule in Delhi also offers an opportunity to unlock the potential of shared mobility.

Arun Srinivas, the chief sales and marketing officer at Ola, said that to continue their efforts to provide commuters an optimum and seamless experience, they will have no peak pricing on rides during the odd-even period. They will encourage all driver-partners, passengers, and citizens to participate and make the third edition of the scheme a success.

Last month, Uber India had announced to deactivate the surge pricing during the implementation of the odd-even scheme.

An Uber spokesperson told PTI last month that they are doing their part in ensuring movement around the city by deactivating dynamic pricing. They wished for the success of the initiative.

The scheme was notified on Friday by the government. The vehicles move according to their registration numbers on alternate days of the scheme.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had said that Uber and ola cab apps would not apply surge pricing during the scheme.

According to the Delhi government, advisories have been issued to autorickshaws and e-rickshaws to avoid over-charging from commuters.

CNG-driven private vehicles have not been exempted from the scheme this time. Two-wheelers have been exempted as they form around 88 percent of total registered vehicles.
