BluSmart, an all-electric ride-hailing platform, has announced the expansion of its services in Delhi. The electric cabs will now also be available in Vasant Kunj, Vasant Vihar, Dwarka, Mahipalpur and some areas of Mehrauli-Gurgaon Road (MG Road) starting 18 August 2020. BluSmart will make over 350 electric cars available across the regions. Residents from these areas can book their all-electric and sanitised cabs for destinations in and around Delhi, Gurugram as well as to and from the Delhi International Airport at no surge, flat fares starting at Rs 99.

BluSmart also recently introduced new features on its app such as Blu Wallet for in-app no-contact payments. The wallet can be recharged using all debit and credit cards, digital wallets, net-banking, and UPI methods. The other highlight of BluSmart services is the Hourly Rentals that let customers keep the vehicle for a longer duration at prices starting at Rs 199.

The service provider states that its driver-partners have been trained to open and close the door for customers, so as to help avoid contact with surfaces as much as possible. Moreover, BluSmart also provides all its cabs with surface disinfectants and hand sanitisers which can be accessed by riders from the rear seat. The passenger is also shown the last time of the disinfection of the cab when they board.
