In its bid to promote carpooling, online cab service provider Uber has launched #SwitchToPool campaign in six cities -- New Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Hyderabad and Chennai -- where it currently provides its uberPOOL facility.
With uberPOOL, the company aims to find a solution to the rising pollution levels and congestion in the Indian cities.
Uber will encourage more riders to use uberPool by making it the default option on the app for riders and rolling out special 'pledge and win offers' through the end of the year.
The company will also share the impact made by riders across India on the environment by switching to pool through a live microsite that will be updated on a daily basis.
