Uber India requests dialogue with Delhi government regarding bike taxi ban and electrification goals

Share via:

Major ride-hailing company Uber has urged the Delhi government to convene an industry dialogue in order to find a solution to the bike taxi ban and the two-wheeler ride-hailing aggregators’ electrification goals.

The announcement comes just days after the Delhi government outlawed bike taxis, claiming that using private vehicles for commercial purposes violated the Motor Vehicle Act of 1988. The state government also threatened stiff fines if bike taxi aggregators were found operating in violation of the ban. More than 19 lakh trips in the Delhi NCR were between metro cities, “underscoring the need-gap bike taxis fill in solving for the last mile commute,” said Shiva Shailendran, Uber India & South Asia’s director of operations.
