As the city moves up for the second part of odd-even rule, startup iUnir has dispatched a portable application to encourage ride sharing on individual vehicles. There are about 3 million four wheelers in Delhi and 6 million bikes offering at least 2 and 1 seat respectively which can be shared for commuting through this app, he said.
iUnir users can log in to the application using their Facebook or LinkedIn account so that they get to share ride with their contacts only. “We have kept safety in mind. Facebook and Linkedin account login gives user access to ride with their contacts. Also, users need to update their photo id, verify mobile number and email to activate services of the app,” iUnir Co-founder Sandeep Kumar said. People sharing ride cannot make any profit, as making profit on personal vehicle is prohibited under Motor Vehicle Act.
iUnir is targeting to have 1 million users in Delhi NCR and once it stabilises in the region, the company will expand service to Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chandigarh, Hyderabad, and Pune to target office going commuters.
