Uber disinfect car trip: Uber has announced it has set up a sanitization hub at the Delhi Airport in partnership with Delhi International Airport Ltd (DIAL) to disinfect cars before every single trip, using state-of-the-art equipment and disinfectants, for setting exemplary safety standards for riders and drivers.
For more than two months now, Uber has been urging riders to stay home and be safe. But now, as cities begin to reopen and residents start moving again, their safety is once again top of mind for us. Following the resumption of domestic air travel in India, we are resuming our airport transportation services across 29 cities.
To set exemplary safety standards for riders and drivers, we have partnered with Delhi International Airport Ltd (DIAL), GMR Hyderabad International Airport Limited (GHIAL), and Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL), to set up Uber sanitization hubs for disinfecting cars before every single trip, using state-of-the-art equipment and disinfectants- ”Uber stated’.
These sanitization hubs have been set up in Uber pick-up zones at Bangalore and Hyderabad Airports, and Multi-Level Car Parking (MLCP) of Terminal 3 at Delhi Airport, which is currently the only functional terminal there.
Uber is also ensuring contactless car entry and exit for riders. Disinfected car doors and boots will be opened only by drivers to minimize rider contact. Riders, in turn, will be expected to handle their own luggage.
The cab company is also offering digital and contactless payment options besides making face masks mandatory for both drivers and riders.
“It is our collective responsibility to ensure the safety of passengers traveling by air and during ground transfers. We have taken a slew of measures at the airport to make sure the processes are contact-free, and that the highest safety standards are maintained. It is extremely heartening to see last-mile cab aggregators ensuring the first and last legs of travel are safe, too,” said Videh Kumar Jaipuriar, chief executive, Delhi International Airport.
