Cab drivers of Ola and Uber have stopped services at Shamshabad International Airport to protest their demands. As a result, nearly 3,000 Ola and Uber cabs plying to the airport were halted. This is causing serious problems for passengers at the airport. Prior to the Corona outbreak, the airport usually served more than 5,000 cabs a day. 


After COVID,‌ their number was reduced to three thousand. Cabs have become more difficult for drivers to drive due to poor air traffic or reduced passenger rates and rising diesel rates. They are not finding return trips and so are losing money. In a state of disarray, cab drivers raised concerns, demanding an increase in fares to Rs 22 per kilometer and a reduction in the commission charged by Ola and Uber. 


Before Corona, a cab driver earned between Rs 2,000 and Rs 3,000 a day. But today, the Ola and Uber drivers are claiming that they are not even earning Rs 1,000 and all the revenue is going to the companies as they are charging 30% commission. Airport officials, meanwhile, have made alternative arrangements as cab services have been suspended. Three new cab services (Choice, Quickride, 4 Wheels) have been made available. RTC Pushpak buses will also be available, officials said.
