Meru Cabs’ Safety Initiative
Mumbai was once considered to be extremely safe for women. However, not many women right now agree to that anymore. One of the biggest complaints women have is with the public transport in our city and that’s why we like Meru Cabs’ latest initiative, which aims to improve women’s safety. Under this scheme, women can opt for an auto SMS alert facility while booking a cab. The facility will keep sending SMS updates to the number chosen by you, every 15 minutes. This means that you can have a friend or a family member constantly in the know about your location. And since the system is GPS based, the SMS will also mention when and where your trip ended.
