Rapido offers free rides to voters on Delhi election day

As part of the #RideToVote campaign, the brand will waive off 100 per cent of the ride fee.

Bike Taxi app Rapido is offering free rides to the election polling booth for all voters in Delhi on February 8, 2020. The platform will waive off the fee for all rides up to three kilometres to the election booth, anywhere in Delhi.

The brand has already executed the #RideToVote campaign in cities like Jaipur, Lucknow, Ahmedabad, Bhubaneswar, Guwahati, Chennai, Coimbatore, Madurai, Trichy, Vijayawada, Vizag and Hyderabad in the past.
