Uber launches ‘POOL Thursdays’ to mitigate pollution level


Gurugram:Leading online transport aggregator Uber today announced the roll out of ‘POOL Thursdays’ as a part of its #SwitchToPool campaign to accelerate its efforts to offer carpooling and ride-sharing as credible solutions to the growing menace of rising pollution levels and congestion in the city.
In a landmark move, this Pool Thursday, Uber will encourage more riders to use Pool by making that the default option on the app for select riders, during rush hour, the company said in a statement.
“Congestion is more than just an annoyance; it’s a drain on our cities, our economies, our health, and our planet.
Across India, traffic congestion leads to an estimated loss of Rs 60,000 crore per year, including fuel wastage.
Currently, on an average we have just one person in a car at any given point, with the average asset utilization rate as low as five per cent.
