Shuttl, a mobile based office commute service provider, is promoting the concept of shared mobility to reduce the number of private vehicles on the roads and thus help Delhi NCR reduce pollution and congestion. The capital is facing air pollution issues and the air quality in the city has dropped significantly.
The company is offering free bus rides to all new commuters that use Shuttl, for the duration of the Odd-Even Scheme in Delhi [04th – 15th November 2019]. It will offer 2 free rides to every new commuter, to experience how convenient it is to shift from car-travel and commute with Shuttl on an assured AC seat.
All that new subscribers need to do is download and signup on the Shuttl app and use the code “SHUTLMIRCHI” i.e. SHUTTLMIRCHI4 for 04th November, SHUTTLMIRCHI5 for 05th November and so on, to avail free rides. The company is offering free rides across its entire network of bus routes, throughout the economically integrated territory of the National Capital Region (NCT of Delhi, Gurugram, Faridabad, Ghaziabad, Indirapuram, Sahibabad, Noida and Greater Noida).
The company also launched a campaign with Radio Mirchi recently. The campaign, running for the duration of the Scheme will focus on encouraging commuters and citizens to take the lead in fighting pollution, by making clean personal commute choices that support the environment and are sustainable in the long term.
“Increasing pollution and worsening air quality has raised a red flag for everyone” said Mr. Amit Singh, Co-founder and CEO, Shuttl. “It is important that we take preventative measures now when we have time and contribute towards making a better environmental atmosphere. We hope that such initiatives will encourage citizens to adopt shared mobility alternatives and contribute immensely by making small and significant shifts in their personal choices towards sustainable options for daily commute.”
Since inception in April 2015, Shuttl is working to encourage people to reduce their dependence on cars and use bus-based shared mobility instead. Over 57% of users who owned cars have made the modal shift to buses. Today Shuttl serves 1 lakh rides daily in Delhi-NCR, Kolkata, Pune, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Chennai. With a fleet of more than 2000 buses, Shuttl takes over 27,000 cars off the road daily, saving 3.4 million sq.ft. of space and effecting 3400 tonnes of C02 emission savings, monthly.
