Meru Mobility Tech starts to take preventive measures for their drivers and cabs for providing safe rides for their customers.
Coronavirus is spreading across the globe and become the biggest concern for the people and government all around the world. The pandemic outbreak has severely affected almost every business in the market. The cab business is not an exception. Owing to the fear of getting infected while using public transportations, people avoid using buses or even taxis and going out in general. To provide a safe drive for its customer during the time of the pandemic, Meru Mobility Tech has decided to implement several measures to protect its customers’ health.
Meru cabs will be sanitized by Ozone treatment

The company also provide sanitizers, mask and on-site training for its drivers.

On top of that, the company applies Ozone Treatment to sanitize its cabs. The company will designate certain spots in the city for their car to be cleaned.
During the cleaning, ozone air which can prevent the spreading of viruses and bacteria will be released. The use of ozone cleaning can approach hidden places where normal water-based sanitizer cannot reach, for example, air vents, nooks and crannies across the cabin. This initiative has been applied for up to 1,000 cabs now and the number is increasing.
