Uber, Ola ops start outside of red zone

Bengaluru:

Ride-hailing applications Ola and Uber have started their operations in green and orange zones on Monday. Operations in top cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Bengaluru and Chennai, which remain under red zone, remain limited to medical and emergency services. While Ola has started its service in 100 cities, Uber said it is operational in over 25 cities.

The two companies have also come up with a slew of safety notifications like allowing just two passengers in each cab, encouraging digital payments, and mandating use of masks by both passengers and drivers. Ola said that all its drivers will self-authenticate with a selfie before each ride if they are wearing a mask and airconditioning will remain turned off.
