Make Every Tuesday A Car-Free Day
Gurgaon – a workplace for most of us during the week and a hangout hub over the weekend. As new corporate high-rises continue to come up in this city, the number of cars on the road increase exponentially as well, leading to congestions and long traffic jams.
There are approximately 3 million cars that are owned in Delhi, out of which 250,000 cars cross the Sirhaul Toll Plaza to travel from Gurgaon to Delhi and vice versa, every day! The large number of vehicles that travel on the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway lead to severe congestion, especially during peak hours. Statistics show that there are approximately 55,000 commuters who travel between Gurgaon and Delhi in the peak hours, each side, everyday.
In an attempt to decongest Gurgaon’s roads and encourage people to use alternative modes of transport, the city’s traffic police will observe every Tuesday as ‘Car-Free Day’.
We’ve all experienced the frustration of bumper-to-bumper traffic on NH8, delaying us from getting to where we need to be. While Gurgaon’s traffic problem predates Uber’s arrival in NCR, we believe Uber can be a part of the solution to congestion. Three years ago, it was reported that more cars are owned in Delhi than in Mumbai, Bangalore and Chennai combined. At Uber, our vision for the future is one of many fewer cars on the road. We believe traditional car ownership can be a thing of the past.
Wondering how can you be a part of the solution? Every Tuesday, #DitchYourKeys and hitch a ride with your colleague(s) to Gurgaon. Use the split-fare feature within the app and you can ride for as low as ₹1.75/KM*!
Help curb pollution and keep beautiful NCR a healthy place to live, work, and play. There are many alternative transportation options available, and Uber’s just one of them. Make every Tuesday a car-free day. Every Tuesday, #DitchYourKeys.

* Fares on uberGO start at ₹7/KM, you can split a ride upto 4 ways.
