Haridwar Pod Taxi

MBening one of India’s oldest and most popular cities, Haridwar is very congested, so it’s tough to manage the traffic. Almost 1.25 lakh pilgrims and tourists visit Haridwar every day. Over the years, there has been a continuous increase in the number of tourists visiting Haridwar. During the Sawan month and Khumbh time, more than three lakh people reach Haridwar daily. To manage the enormous crowd daily, the Uttrakhand government has decided to launch Pod Taxi services in Haridwar.

There are more than ten famous temples in Haridwar which thousands of devotees visit daily. Every temple is located at different locations, so Pod Taxi in Haridwar will connect these temples so people can travel easily. Currently, the tuk-tuk is the best mode of transportation in Haridwar, but during peak time, the tuk-tuk’s entry has been stopped in most of the area, and only the walking option is left.
