Supporting the movement of people to hospitals during the lockdown through a specially designed service called ‘Uber Essential’ in cities like Bengaluru, Bhopal, Hyderabad, Indore, Mumbai, Nashik, Bhubaneswar and Mohali, by adhering to the guidelines laid down by the authorities, cab aggregator Uber is said to provide its driver-partners with a means of livelihood in the current times, made tough by Covid-19. The radio taxi operator is known to have trained the drivers and provided them with masks, gloves, sanitisers, safety training and curfew passes. Making relevant documentation mandatory for all drivers to validate their purpose of travel, the cab aggregator has been providing service through its app. It is, in another development, known to have fired 600 employees as part of a global restructuring plan announced earlier by Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi.
