Uber on Monday announced partnership with Andhra Pradesh MedTech Zone Limited (AMTZ) for providing an on-demand rental delivery service of life-saving oxygen concentrators to citizens across 12 cities.
COVID positive patients in home isolation will be able to rent oxygen concentrators through the O2Home app, at an affordable price of Rs 300 to Rs 400 per day, a release said.
Uber’s free mobility support will enable convenient, swift and safe doorstep delivery of these oxygen concentrators to help save lives.
The service is operational across 12 Indian cities including Visakhapatnam, Lucknow, Hyderabad, Indore, Coimbatore, Guwahati, Nagpur, Bhubaneswar, Bengaluru, Pune, Jaipur and Raipur. The partnership will help scale this service to dozens more cities through Uber’s extensive mobility network that spans 90+ cities.
These free rides deployed to AMTZ will also help boost earning opportunities for drivers on Uber’s platform during these challenging times.
