With odd-even scheme for private vehicles set to start from January 1 in the capital, the Delhi government will soon issue guidelines on carpooling policy for commuters and office goers.

Delhi Dialogue Comission (DDC) vice-chairman Ashish Khetan will submit a blueprint on carpooling to the government by early next week and how it can be effectively implemented.

“Government is holding meetings with stake holders including cab aggregators to roll out a carpooling policy. We will issue complete guidlines on it so that people can easily use carpooling service,” said a senior government official.

DDC, an advisory body of the AAP government, yesterday held day-long consultations with over a dozen providers to enable and expand ridesharing, carpooling, and shuttle services for the citizens.

This consultation explored the challenges and opportunities in providing and rapidly expanding these solutions to minimize the apprehensions in the minds of car commuters, when the air pollution control measures will be implemented from the new year.
