MakeMyTrip has announced its partnership with BluSmart to launch Electric Vehicles (EV) for airport transfers. With this new offering, the company aims to encourage customers to consciously opt for eco-healthy travel options while choosing and booking first and last-mile transportation.
Bookable through the platform, the new offering is currently available for customers in Delhi and Delhi-NCR region. Moreover, as safety of riders and driver partners continues to remain of utmost importance, MakeMyTrip is also ensuring that these EV vehicles meet the MySafety standards established in compliance to the guidelines of WHO and local health authorities.
“Sustainable travel that was once considered a niche has now found a whole new meaning following the coronavirus pandemic. The ongoing uncertainty has pushed environment-friendly travel up the agenda of the entire industry as well as among travellers. At MakeMyTrip, as we remain deeply rooted in promoting responsible tourism, we have found a great partner in BluSmart which shares a common philosophy of making travel sustainable. With this partnership, we hope to improve accessibility of cost-efficient, go-green transit options while promising safety at all times for travellers as well as driver partners,” Parikshit Choudhury, Chief Business Officer – Ground Transport, MakeMyTrip, said.
