Boom of corporate transportation 16.3.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
The corporate employee transportation ecosystem is truly booming in India, thanks to the erratic public transportation systems, riddled with lack of infrastructure and passenger safety, be it buses, autos, metro or even the cabs controlled by aggregators. As urban cities and towns grow and bustle, long commutes will become more and more commonplace. Safe transportation for women is a major concern, whether they are travelling within the city, outside or even abroad. Especially working women, leaving late from office at night or out of the airport and railways stations. Newspapers often report women getting sexually assaulted, and robbed while they are travelling in a cab or driving their own vehicle. As per a WHO study, 35% of women globally undergo some form of abuse or physical violence while commuting and these are only cases which are reported. Autorickshaws and cab drivers, be they regular taxies or app-based aggregators, often misbehave with women passengers or abuse them. The absence of safe ...
