The country's fastest growing home-bred messaging app's microapp feature not just matches odd-numbered cars with even-numbered cars in the vicinity, but also ensures that car categories are as similar to each other as possible, and that commuter-partners have the flexibility to choose each other after chatting with them, thus helping them make judicious decisions about taking rides together, safely.
The Delhi government has implemented a temporary alternate-day travel scheme for cars using the odd and even-numbered license plates, till January 15, in an attempt to curb air pollution.
Car Match is enabled for all Delhi numbers. Alternatively, you can get an invite from a friend who has it.
