Rapido that happens to be one of India’s largest bike taxi platforms has announced the second phase of its #RideToVaccinate initiative. As the name suggests, Rapido will provide discounted rides to the nearest Covid-19 vaccination centre out of the designated 18 hospitals to all Delhi-NCR citizens who will be going for vaccination. The company says that the initiative is aimed at providing a safe, affordable, and accessible commute to all citizens eligible for vaccination across Delhi-NCR. Rapido says that the discounted rides will be offered for a period of two weeks, starting 10th to 23rd June, 2021. In the first phase of Rapido’s #RideToVaccinate campaign, 10,000 free Rapido auto rides, worth Rs 10 lakhs, were offered from March 31 to April 11, 2021 in Delhi-NCR alone.
In the second phase though, it has to be noted that the rides for vaccination are not completely free. With now the younger population’s turn to get the vaccination, Rapido says that it plans to offer a one-time discount of up to Rs 30 for rides to any of the 18 designated hospitals. That said, if your fare comes out to be less than or equal to Rs 30 (which usually comes for a distance of 4 to 5 km), you don’t need to pay anything. On the other hand, if the fare is higher than Rs 30, then you only need to pay the extra amount. The said offer will be auto-applied on the Rapido ride once the commuter chooses any of the below-designated hospitals as their destination for their ride on the Rapido app:
