Meru Cabs Partners With Multiple Banks To Facilitate Transport For Employees During Lock Down

Mumbai based ridesharing company, Meru Cabs, has announced a partnership with the State Bank of India, Kotak Mahindra, RBL Bank, Barclays, and Union Bank to offer travel services for bank employees.

Doing its bit to help during the lock down period, Meru Cabs will deploy 800 sanitized vehicles that will be used by bank employees to travel between their homes and their work place. Over 200 sanitized cabs have already been deployed.

In an attempt to avoid any from of physical touch, the company is encouraging cashless payments, and is maintaining social distancing. The new partnerships with multiple banks is aimed to help employees who don't own a private vehicle. Public transport has been non operational during the lock down in the country.

Mr Neeraj Gupta, the Founder and CEO at Meru Mobility Tech Pvt. Ltd. said, "With banking sector providing essential support during this lockdown and public transportation being ceased in most of the cities, we at Meru have undertaken supporting our bank employees."

"We have deployed 200 Ozone sanitized vehicles to ensure that bank employees can reach their workplaces in a safe environment. To mitigate any risk while traveling, we have taken several measures to reassure customers and maintain the safety of both the rider and driver partner. Our partnership with banks will help keep our economy running while following the government guidelines for containing COVID-19."

The company announced recently that it had introduced measures to better customer protection during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Along with sanitizing cabs at designated hubs in the city, the company is educating its driver-partners about preventive measures. Their driver-partners now use alcohol-based sanitizers, and face masks that are changed regularly.

Thoughts About Meru Cabs Partnering With Multiple Banks

This is a smart move by Meru Cabs. It keeps the company's assets at use, and helps its driver-partners to earn while a lock down is in effect. We're sure the cabs are being sanitized 100 per cent and that the company is doing everything it can to ensure driver and passenger safety. We're unsure if other aggregators like Uber and Ola will strike similar deals with other banks and business establishments.
