The Last Mile Conundrum

September 26, 2020 at 4:46 pm

Last Mile Connectivity as a term has gained popularity across all sectors.

What does it mean? It is described as a beginning or end of an individual trip made primarily by public transportation. Public transport doesn’t necessarily take us exactly where we need to go and at times walking is not always the quickest or the most convenient way to move reach our destination.

The last mile connectivity plays a major role in improving mobility. It plays an important factor in enabling access to other modes of mass transits. With rapid urbanization and technological innovations, the problem of last-mile connectivity remains elusive. Even though public transportation services have grown but there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution for every situation. 

Increasing the use of ride-hailing services is a quick and convenient option for many to bridge this gap of last-mile connectivity; especially for airport transfers.  Cabs are often handier when a passenger has just finished a long flight and they immediately need to go home or office or hotel. Airports are designed to be far from the main city and traveling from an airport can pose an inconvenience and hence people either book their cabs online or book a ride with the airport taxis for a hassle-free travel experience.

Meru, a pioneer in tech-enabled ride-hailing experience, has a tie-up with 5 major cities in India like Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, and Jodhpur to be their official cab service providers. Meru also offers safe, reliable, and affordable airport transfers in 24 cities in India. Passengers can schedule a ride with Meru either at the airport counter or schedule their ride in advance to reduce the waiting time once they land. So, the next time when you are flying, don’t forget #MeruHaiNa.
