The second wave hit harder, and this time, the automotive industry come together to extend its services to society. Many cab services, car subscription, and car rental companies collaborate with the hospitals and government to aid the country’s battle against COVID-19.
Automotive Industry’s Initiative
As Coronavirus cases in the country continue to escalate, several private firms have come forward and extended their services for those in need.
Commute for Treatment
With the surge in Covid-19 cases, the country is facing a scarcity of resources. Amidst the chaos, private companies collab with the state governments and hospitals to provide cabs to Covid patients for an easy commute for their treatment. These cab services are running 24 hours a day to pick and drop patients while taking all necessary precautionary measures. The facility is offered free of cost, and the vehicles are equipped with masks and sanitiser.
Recently, we heard about Auto-Ambulance with Oxygen support in Delhi. The autos of the capital modify to help COVID-19 patients with an oxygen level between 85-90 to reach the hospital on time and risk-free. Many cab services companies have also started similar initiatives like:
- In-build Oxygen Cylinder in the vehicles.
- Doorstep Delivery of Oxygen Concentrators to Customers.
- Customers can make a request through their apps, and website and after providing a few basic details, the supplies will be delivered.
- Many private firms extend aid by offering free oxygen cylinders to cabs to meet the requirements.
Cab services are thoroughly supporting the Indian Government’s vaccination drive. Book your slot, and then book your cab. Travel risk-free to your centre in no time. Not only this, cab services offer discounts to the customers who are going for vaccination and even free rides to senior citizens.
Initially, some cab services companies offered 25000 more free rides to COVID-19 vaccine centres across the country. Contributions continue to pour in from private firms, both domestic and international, to support them.
One company offers free emergency cab services for COVID patients, and the other is helping with the vaccination drive.

Furthermore, these companies also offering services like medical assistance like providing medicines, injection, etc., the patient needs.
