It has been several months of the Corona pandemic and people are still afraid of it. Governments of different countries are still working on finding out the best solution to overcome the Coronavirus disease. Many countries are still facing a lockdown condition.
India has been under lockdown for the last few months and now the government is trying to resume the workspaces, companies, transportation, malls, and other services slowly with safety guidelines.
Ola, the Indian ridesharing company also resumed its services with very strict safety precautions. Being a user of Ola ridesharing service, I recently received an email from the company about how and where they’re resuming the services.
In the email, it’s noted, “We want to make sure that when you step out, you move with complete protection. So, when Ola services resume in your city, be assured that every ride will come with 5 layers of safety, and top levels of cleanliness and hygiene.”
- Drivers will have regular temperature checks
- Every car will be cleaned before every ride
- Drivers will always wear masks
- All cars will be fumigated thrice a week
- Get Flexible cancellations if your ride isn’t hygienic.
So, it is very clear that every Ola ride will be protecting you with these 5 layers of safety from coronavirus. And, I am personally very happy to know that Ola is resuming its services with such safety measures for its users.
Ola services are not now completely resumed in all over India. There’re still some cities where it’s still inactive. You can visit this page to know where Ola has resumed its services. It’s also to be noted that Ola Share is not currently active in any city due to maintaining social distancing.
Along with these 5 layers of safety for its riders, Ola is requesting the riders to follow these 5 steps:
- Every rider must wear a mask and carry sanitizer to keep you and your driver safe.
- Keep the AC off and windows open to avoid air recirculation.
- A maximum of 2 riders per car to maintain social distancing.
- Please load your own luggage to limit points of contact.
- Go cashless to avoid unnecessary contact.
So, with these security protocols, Ola is resuming its services. Not only Ola but slowly all the services will be going to resume in a couple of days. It’s now up to all of us to take care of ourselves by maintaining the proper social distancing, wearing masks, and following the guidelines issued by the government.
