Do you share a car while commuting to office? Follow these rules

While there are official SOPs for flights, trains and buses, there are none for using car-pooling services

There are standard operating procedures to be followed when one takes a flight, also for those boarding a train or taking a bus.

How about the SOP for those who use car-pool or share cabs to commute from home to office and back? After all, 174 million people in India used car pooling in 2019, says data from Statista.

With companies around the country allowing up to one-third of their employees to get back to offices post the lockdown, people have also started using car pooling.

"A little over 10 percent of our members have started using the service," says Shailesh Dubey of Liftlelo, a carpooling service in Mumbai. With over 20,000 members, Liftlelo works through WhatsApp groups dedicated to specific routes in the city.
