Uber is Trying To Win Back Delhi By Offering Insane Discounts
It’s evident Uber is trying very hard to gain back lost ground in the capital. Post the rape incident, which nudged the government to look into the workings of app-based cab services, Uber has been banned to operate in Delhi several times. But the company keeps bouncing back.
The company would know, it is serious business when you’re trying to revive your business. Recently, for the people of Delhi, Uber announced a promotional offer that will allow customers to ride for as low as Rs 4.3/km.
The offer is at an extreme rate. Normally for an UberX ride, the charges are R.s 9/km with Rs 55 as base fare and for a Uber Black cab; it is Rs. 12/km with Rs 85 as a base fare.
Another offer currently running, which Delhites should take advantage of – using the promo code DELHI40, customers can avail up to 40% discount on the charges. The offer is applicable for just twice a day from 12 pm to 4pm, till 26th of June.

Customers can access this premium offer from both, the web version of Uber as well as the mobile application. For people using their services for daily transport, this is quite an attractive deal. There are only two more days left on this promotional offer, so make sure you use it to your benefit.
Uber was away from Delhi roads for quite some time while its competitors like Ola Cabs and TaxiForSure were carrying on their business smoothly. Uber also cleared its intentions regarding the security of the passengers saying that it is allowing only those “driving-partners who have undergone re-verification of their Police clearance in the last six weeks to get back on the platform.” Also, they are crossing the details of the drivers at their ends as well.
Also, Uber has developed some safety features that will be implanted in the vehicles nationwide. The security measures include an in-app emergency button, through which passenger can report about possible danger. It is also in process of forming a dedicated incident response team.
