Bangalore based cab aggregator, Ola, launched 'Ola Emergency' services in Mumbai. The service is currently being offered across 15 cities across the country.
The company says that the Ola Emergency service is convenient, reliable, and offers safe transport services for all non-Covid-19 medial trips. People can avail the services for medical trips such as scheduled check-ups, dialysis, chemotherapy, and for immediate medical needs such as injuries, among others.
Ola has launched these services in partnership with multiple State Governments, and are stressing heavily on social distancing while executing the services.
Citizens wanting to use the service can book a cab by selecting the ‘Ola Emergency' category over the Ola smartphone app, and enter a drop location from a list of hospitals available in the city. The service allows for trips to be booked from homes to hospitals and vice versa only.
The company says it has mapped over 200 hospitals across Mumbai giving people more options to choose from.
The company says that the emergency service offers a clean and safe ride experience. All cabs involved in the initiative are equipped with protective equipment like hand sanitizers and face masks. In addition, cabs are operate by specially trained driver-partners who follow all sanitary guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health.
Mr Anand Subramanian, a Spokesperson at Ola said, "The response to Ola Emergency since its launch less than two weeks ago has been very encouraging. Thousands of citizens in these cities have availed the service and we continue to receive requests from across the country to enable this service."
"The quality of cars, safety measures, and timeliness of the service has been welcomed by citizens and the authorities alike, further motivating us to double down on expanding the service to more cities amidst the extended lockdown. The service will also help provide an economic lifeline to many driver-partners whose incomes have taken a hit in the past few weeks," he added.
Ola had first launched Emergency Services earlier this month at Bangalore, and has expanded to 15 other cities across the country — Gurgaon, Visakhapatnam, Nashik, Varanasi, Indore, Bhopal, Amritsar, Ludhiana, Jalandhar, Patiala, Mohali, Rourkela Bhubaneswar, and now Mumbai.
