Website Indimoto.com has announced that they would be happy to provide a free-car pool service during the Commonwealth Games in Delhi.
It said that it would waive aside the nominal fee it charges for matching car poolers from September 20 till October 16 for those posting car pool requests not only from Delhi but from across India.
Interested commuters who wish to car pool can register on www.indimoto.com for free and put a carpool wanted ad with their respective routes and timings. Indimoto.com's recently revamped website maintains privacy of the user's contact details and verifies respondent's details to ensure safety.
Speaking about the new initiative, Udit Bhandari, Founder and CEO of Indimoto.com said; "The Commonwealth Games 2010 will become a nightmare for Delhi's motorists who will face long traffic jams when the dedicated CWG lanes come into effect from September 20 till October 16. The Delhi Government and industry associations like ASSOCHAM have been pleading office-goers to carpool and Indimoto.com being India's 1st carpool classifieds is here to help them find suitable matches".
Trials of the dedicated CWG lanes on key arterial roads have already resulted in massive traffic jams and when the lanes come into permanent effect, the congestions will be unprecedented. Mr. Bhandari added; "If even 5% of the 85 lakh-strong working population of Delhi and NCR opt for carpools, it will be a milestone achievement for us and will go a long way in reducing traffic and pollution during this important international event".
To further generate awareness about the cause of carpooling Indimoto.com has launched a viral carpool application on its Facebook page which enables people to support carpooling by making just one click. Next month Indimoto.com will also launch India's 1st Corporate Carpool Programme to enable employees of large organisations to find carpool partners.
Indimoto.com is a popular auto classifieds website which was launched in 2006. It is owned by Udit Bhandari and is headquartered in Delhi. The website enables used car and bike buyers and sellers to transact transparently and conveniently via a state-of-the-art platform.
