While talking to us Priya said, “After I did not get any early morning flight, my parents were anxious when I told them I am booking an afternoon flight as some urgent work has come up at office. As they have been to Bengaluru multiple times, they knew it would take at least five hours to reach my PG in which is in Banashankari 3rd stage”.

Priya added, “As flight was landing around 6 PM, baggage clear karne ka half hour add karo toh, by the time I reach PG it would be 11:30 PM. Naturally Parents would be worried about my safety, PG ka gate bhi gyara baje tak bandh ho jaata hai”.

Priya was in for a pleasant surprise when Uber app showed 4 hours to reach her destination. “Side by side I checked Ola as well as google map. Both showed four hours. Pata Nahin, aissa chamatkar kaisse ho raha tha. I am in sales team and travel quite often. Some occasions whenever I landed at Bengaluru airport in evenings, I will spend the night at airport lounge and book a cab for early morning next day”.

Priya’s journey was smooth, just half a kilometer before her PG, BBMP had dug up roads and asked the traffic to take a diversion, which means another one hour of drive. Priya did not want to take any more chance, got down and walked towards her PG. Not only she beat the 4-hour time Uber was showing, she was able to watch her favorite 10:30 PM TV serial from the beginning”.
