Kolkata: It is that time of the year when the entire city decks up and the spirit of festivity breaks loose all over Bengal. This Durga Puja, Uber, the technology company dedicated to transforming the way people commute in the cities has launched – The Durga Puja Ride Guide 2016.
Ashwin Dias, General Manager, Uber East, said, “With an aim to keep Kolkata moving during the busiest time of the year, we decided to give our riders the best Pujo experience, by giving them a well curated guide which includes information about the best Pandals to visit, partnerships with a lot of restaurants for our riders to get discounted meals and much more. We’ve also set up pick up points, around the heavy traffic areas in order to help riders get a ride with ease.”
Top 20 areas surrounding pandals have been identified that are expected to have very high footfall in the city. The riders will receive messages on their Uber app to guide them to the nearest Uber pick up point.
The riders can unlock something special from October 7-14 at few of the hotspots in town if they show their Uber receipts.
