To help contain the spread of COVID-19 and to set the highest safety standards in these challenging times, Uber has spearheaded the formation of a Transport Safety Alliance (TSA) in partnership with DBL Pharma, Zantrik, Dettol (Reckitt Benckiser) and Fresh Tissue. The alliance is meant to generate safety awareness amongst consumers, and to equip drivers with necessary health and safety supplies to ensure safer rides.
As a part of the Alliance, Uber and its allies are distributing key safety supplies such as masks, soaps, tissues and sanitisers to its drivers from Zantrik-provided distribution points. Reckitt Benckiser is providing Dettol soap bars free of charge, and Fresh is contributing tissue paper boxes for distribution to drivers.
Commenting on the formation of this alliance, Ratul Ghosh, Head of East India and Bangladesh, said, "In these challenging times, the one thing that hasn't changed is Uber's commitment towards the economy, safety of our communities, and to #MoveWhatMatters. We formed this alliance with the single objective of joining forces with reputed organisations and brands to provide the highest safety standards. I am thankful to all our partners for their valuable contributions."
Uber is committed to supporting its communities in these incredibly challenging times. Working collaboratively with other organisations increases the possibility of containing the spread of the virus and puts communities on the path to recovery.
