On-demand cab-hailing company Uber on Thursday announced that it will not levy dynamic or surge pricing, where fares are raised when demand is higher than the available cabs, during the odd-even days.

The move comes in a support to Delhi government’s odd-even scheme, scheduled to be implemented from next week in the capital. The scheme will be rolled out for five days from November 13.  

Uber released a statement and said, “This is a moment of crisis and public health emergency in Delhi NCR. Uber is committed to fully supporting the odd-even scheme.”

“As a first step, we have decided to suspend dynamic pricing during the odd-even days. Additionally, rides to and from metro stations will also ply on reduced fares,” Uber India General Manager, North and Delhi NCR, Prabhjeet Singh said in a statement.

The car rationing scheme, which will be in place from 8 am to 8 pm, exempted for women drivers, two-wheelers, and vehicles carrying children in school uniforms, besides VVIPs.

Uber said it has started offering discounts on its taxi sharing rides UberPool.

“We are also securing anti-pollution masks for staff as well as our driver partners. Masks are being made available on priority at all our driver touch-points and driver support centres,” the statement said.

Last year, the cab-hailing company had suspended the surcharge during the odd-even days but reintroduced it as the scheme ended.
