Shuttle, a renowned app-based transportation solution for women, has launched “Shuttle for Business” - a new pick and drop service for organisations that want to ensure safe transportation of their employees.

In the wake of the current coronavirus pandemic, “Shuttle for Business” aims to enable organisations to provide their employees with safe, affordable, and comfortable transportation.

With businesses reopening and struggling to cope with the shock of the COVID-19 impact, safe transportation for employees has become a major challenge in the capital city, said a press release on Sunday.

Finding reliable transport in time has always been a problem for office-goers in the city, and with the added threat of the pandemic, public transport is no longer a safe, viable mode of transport.

“Shuttle for Business” aims to solve this by providing safe and sanitized microbuses that regularly move employees through customized routes catering to the client organisations.

“We are enabling organisations to support their moving employees during the pandemic and beyond,” said Reyasat Chowdhury, CEO, Shuttle.

“By providing customised transportation solutions to organisations, we are ensuring their employees can safely reach office on time, and this, ultimately, leads to higher satisfaction and productivity among employees in addition to reducing their commuting costs,” he said. 

The vehicles used by Shuttle are sanitized twice on a daily basis, with the drivers wearing masks and gloves all the time. The vehicles are equipped with sanitizers, masks, and gloves for the passengers as well.

Full app-based support is available, with passengers being able to track the vehicles, book or cancel rides, and check detailed information about the driver.

A dashboard is also provided to the Admin or HR team where organisations receive information regarding the status of their employees’ commute in real-time. “Shuttle for Business” also assigns dedicated relationship managers to ensure a smooth communication channel.

Shuttle is already working with more than 10 companies at the moment and plans to serve many more in the coming days.

To kick-start their journey towards a safer commute, organizations can visit and sign up for a 30-minute consultation session with Shuttle.
