Rapido, a prominent ride-sharing platform, has announced a significant initiative to support the democratic process in Hyderabad. In light of the upcoming assembly elections, Rapido will offer free rides to voters to over 2,600 polling stations in the city on November 30. This initiative is aimed at encouraging voters to participate actively in the elections by providing them with convenient and accessible transportation options to reach polling stations.
This gesture by Rapido reflects the company’s commitment to boosting voter turnout in Telangana, particularly among its predominantly young user base. By removing transportation barriers, Rapido aims to facilitate a higher level of participation in the democratic process. This effort not only supports the logistical aspect of voting but also promotes the importance of active citizenship and democratic engagement in the community.
