‘Home-Check’ to drop you safely

New Delhi, Mar 8 (UNI) Commuting more than 20,000 commuters across the Delhi-NCR region daily, mobility company Shuttl has successfully tested and rolled out its Home - Check feature on all its 500 buses across NCR.
“As part of the company's suite of technology-enabled SAFE (Secure Anxiety Free Experience) solutions, Home-Check is designed to ensure last mile safety. Since women passengers, post a bus-stop drop off, have to still make their way home by walking, talking an auto, or by taking a cab, there is an additional need to assure safety till they arrive at their final destination. Home - Check was built to assure safety by monitoring this last leg of women's commute,” said Shuttl CEO Amit Singh on the occasion of International Women’s Day.
When the user opts for 'Home-Check' through their booking confirmation SMS, they are able to confirm their details through a URL sent to them. The user then inputs their emergency contact details and tentative time period by which they expect a call from Shuttl to confirm that they have safety arrived to their destination. The company will then follow up with the user at the exact time entered through an IVR call. In case the commuter does not answer, another will go directly to the emergency contact number registered with Shuttl.
“Accessing safe transport is first hurdle for any woman who wants to access work opportunities. At the national level, also, we believe a safe commute is a must for the full participation by women in the Indian economy. While SAFE ensures on board safety, we also have to ensure door – to door - safety. Today, more than 50,000 (35%) of Shuttl's customers are women and this number is fast growing...we hope to continue to enhance safety measures for Shuttl's women passengers," statement said.
