Oxxy, a healthcare network, has tied up with radio taxi aggregator Uber to provide free pick-and-drop facility to all the hospitals, diagnostic and pathological laboratories in Delhi.
The development comes days after the state transport department asked Uber to stop plying in the national capital in order to review it's fresh application for a licence.
The tie-up will be operational in Delhi from 1April. People travelling to any medical center - hospitals, diagnostic or pathological laboratories - will get free rides from Uber.
All the facilities can be availed of by just logging on to www.oxxy.in or calling 09999-000-102 any time. Also, the tie-up would provide discounts of 5 to 40 per cent on medical tests.
Uber has the largest network in India outside it's headquarters in USA.
Pankaj Gupta, the founder of Oxxy, said: "Adding the facility for free pick-and-drop to medical centers is another step forward to make healthcare accessible for all. We are planning to expand it in other cities as well."
Commenting on the association, Sanil Bhatia, general manager, Uber, added: "We are quite confident that our alliance with Oxxy would facilitate a seamless commute at the tap of an app for anyone looking to visit healthcare facilities."
