Apps That Will Save You From Hassle During This Odd Even In Delhi NCR
Odd Even Ride
This free Android app lets you find people nearby you can carpool with. You just have to enter your car and phone number, and then you get a list of all the other people who are on a similar route, with similar timings. You can contact them with the press of a button, either by SMS, or via a call, and one your details are saved, you don’t need to enter them again if you want to see who is free to commute with you.
This time during the odd even rule, having a personal assistant app will not only save you time & money but will also help in getting the best option to commute in the city. Helpchat allows you to book a cab available in your vicinity, featuring quick and economic availability. By using the cab feature on Helpchat, one can actually plan, search for options and go for the best option, avoiding price surge during peak commuting hours.
Helpchat, India’s biggest personal assistant app will also help you with its feature of air quality check in your locality. With the help of this feature one can take the less polluted route and avoid air related health issues.
UberPool/ Ola Share/ Meru
Uber (iOS | Android), Ola (iOS | Android), and Meru (iOS |Android) allows one to “share ride” – Tap a button on the screen to let the app know that one is willing to share, and it will allow other people who are headed in the same direction to take the cab too. It’s voluntary, but also cheaper than riding alone. This feature in Uber/Ola/Meru helps save money and the environment.
Zoomcar If one doesn’t want to hire a cab, and aren’t comfortable with carpooling they could try one of the self-drive car rental apps, such as Zoomcar (iOS | Android). You’ll get a car with the right number plate when you need it. It’s pretty easy and takes just a few taps on your phone and is delivered and picked up from your home. It’s not the most cost effective solution though – booking a car from Sunday night to Friday night will cost you at least Rs. 3,000 – around Rs. 600 per day. This includes not just the price of booking the car, but also fuel.
Orahi, the corporate carpooling app after its collaboration with odd-even.com adds more carpool options for the corporate workers and eventually helps in curbing traffic and pollution for the city. Beside this Orahi’s offers such as ‘Every second ride free’ and ‘1 litre of free petrol for car owners everyday’ will be extended to the new users as well.
