Uber To Provide Free Rides to Child Care Professionals

Uber will provide 30,000 free rides to help childcare professionals to commute and attend children in distress.


The app-based cab aggregator has partnered with Childline India Foundation (CIF), backed by the Union Women and Child Development Ministry, the nodal agency that operates Childline 1098 emergency helpline service for kids.


The three-month association from October to December 2020 worth over ₹63 lakh, would extend across all 83 cities where Uber operates. It also includes mobility support to CHILDLINE 1098 personnel in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Bengaluru and Chennai, where the CIF has their contact centres.


Anjaiah Pandiri, Executive Director, CIF, said, "With their support, we will be able to respond to and reach children in distress whenever and wherever needed."


Prabhjeet Singh, President, Uber India, and South Asia, stated, "We are thrilled to partner with CHILDLINE 1098, a phone number that spells hope for millions of children across India, and work towards building a brighter future for India's youngest citizens."
