How Rideshare Services are Changing the Way We Travel

With their efficiency and cost effectiveness, rideshare services are making a marked difference in the urban traffic pattern.

The overwhelming impression of any snapshot of the urban landscape of Delhi is jammed roads with rows and rows of cars. They line up at traffic crossings, at all major roads and at almost every nook and corner. Urban traveling can be nerve-racking at best. At its worst, during peak hours, it can be depressingly tedious.

The change
Given its overwhelming burden of automobiles, the Delhi government has worked actively to reduce the number of cars on Delhi roads. Rideshare services are an important part of this initiative. Shared cabs are almost like public transport where people share their ride, thus reducing automobiles on the road. One can think of it as carpooling where you share your ride with other passengers. The net result is the reduction of cars, both cabs and privately owned cars.

How to get one
The best part of rideshare services is that they are also easy and convenient. Thanks to technology, car-sharing services have come a long way. Today there are a number of apps that facilitate ridesharing. All you have to do is download an app on your phone and just start the process!
Usually, the apps work by connecting you to other commuters and cabs that are going your way. Where earlier you had little or no means of contacting other commuters, now it is as easy as clicking on your phone. Ridesharing apps have dramatically changed the scenario.

Safety first
Contrary to expectations, cab share services have actually made commuting safer in Delhi. With a number of safety features on their apps, these services have made a focused attempt for providing a safe ride. The apps work on maximum information sharing, providing detailed profile of drivers and commuters.


Rideshare services have clearly changed the way we travel in the Capital. They offer a convenient, fast and efficient means of travel that is now becoming increasingly popular.
