Ride-sharing platform BlaBlaCar with over 30 million members for its affordable travel option claims to witness a significant growth since rolling out in India in early 2015.

 

Travelers all over India are realizing the benefits of ride-sharing in the form of greater flexibility, cost savings and unique experiences.

“Now that we’re witnessing a maturity and a strong growth trend in the Indian market, we feel that it’s the right time to launch a more feature-rich BlaBlaCar platform.” said Raghav Gupta, India Country Manager, BlaBlaCar.

The launch of the new booking service makes it easier to find a ride and book a seat online and provides beneficial features to travelers as well as car owners.

To add an extra layer of trust & safety, government ID verification has been introduced. Members can verify their Passport, Aadhaar card or PAN card, both securely and confidentially.

For women to feel safer, BlaBlaCar has a feature that allows members to plan a ride where the car owner and all co-travelers are women.

A trip of 75 Km distance on BlaBlaCar would be priced between Rs. 125-150/- per seat.

The transaction will be made in the car, at the end of the trip, in cash.

BlaBlaCar is currently making strong gains on routes like Delhi-Chandigarh, Delhi-Agra, Delhi-Jaipur and Bangalore-Hyderabad.
