Hyderabad Metro partners with redBus to start carpool services

To strengthen its last mile connectivity project, Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited starts carpool service for train passengers in partnership with online bus ticketing platform redBus through an app “rPool“.

Dedicated space has been offered for rPool to set up kiosks for customer service, along with parking facilities for ride-givers through the app. In addition to this, rPool’s customer service executives posted at the stations will provide 1,000 metro smart cards to its customers.

Car pooling and bike pooling is an ideal solution to reduce congestion by sharing vehicles which allows office-goers to avail and offer rides in their personal cars and bikes. The concept would help the creation of sustainable and eco-friendly solutions for the burgeoning traffic problems in the city.
