prevent injuries in case of accidents. As a responsible service provider, we
believe in bringing about a transformation in the space. Our constant endeavor
has been to sensitise passengers about road safety measures. This impetus
drives us to equip our autos with seatbelts and rain curtains, ensuring

Delhi, Hyderabad, and Bengaluru, and we are steadfast in extending this
practice across all the cities where we are operational."
Rapido Auto has collaborated with city traffic police departments across India

basic life support training for their captains, along with a mime programme
aimed at illustrating the importance of road safety at major traffic
intersections across various cities including Gurgaon, Hyderabad, Chennai,
Bengaluru, Vijayawada, and Madurai. Rapido's ongoing collaboration with law
enforcement and concerned stakeholders demonstrates a holistic approach to
encourage implementation and public adoption of road safety norms.
