BENGALURU: In a statement released on Wednesday, global taxi aggregator Uber said, “Chennai, these are testing times.” As the rain has made it difficult to get anywhere in Chennai, Uber has jumped in to connect with the denizens of the city.

The rain is expected to worsen over the next few days. “We are working extremely hard with our driver partners to ensure a reliable ride to get around Chennai,” said Uber, which is using the hashtag #KeepChennaiMoving.

“While we are helping transport supplies to relief camps, we’ve also disabled dynamic pricing. All rides taken in Chennai today and tomorrow will be free, to get you and your family from Point A to Point B safely,” Uber said.

The firm said that people could face higher than normal ETAs as demand for rides is more than usual. It also said cars were limited and it might be tough to find a ride. Uber signs off with, “Whatever the rain brings, we’ll ride it out together Chennai”.
