To enable Delhites to breathe comfortably, Vodafone India has taken first-of-its initiative and set-up Air Purifying Bus Shelter at Safdarjung Hospital bus stand in New Delhi. The commuters travelling via Safdarjung Hospital can make a quick stop and can literally breathe-in a sigh of relief at the Vodafone Air Purifying Bus Shelter. Another Air-Purifying Bus Shelter will be set up at another prime locations of New Delhi which sees maximum inflow of people throughout the day.
Vodafone Air Purifying Bus Shelters is covered with plastic curtains giving it a transparent close room look and will have three industrial air purifiers installed inside. The shelter will also house an indicator-system comprising of two grids of LEDs, one displaying the level of pollution outside the shelter and the another will display the air quality measure inside the bus stop so that passengers can get to know the difference as stated by Vodafone in its press statement.
Vodafone has strategically chosen the air purifying bus shelter to be set up at Safdarjung. This is because of the large number of patients who visit AIIMS and Safdarjung hospitals from across the country. And waiting in line for a bus in a polluted environment would be even more harmful for a person already tackling health issues. Therefore this initiative is Vodafone’s way of bringing some relief to the public, adds the statement of the company.
Commenting on the initiative Apoorva Mehrotra Business Head Delhi-NCR said “At Vodafone we are always looking for unique and innovative engagement opportunities that touch the lives of our customers, and this initiative is the extension of that philosophy. The alarming air quality in Delhi NCR has made us contemplate the possible ways of addressing the issue. The bus shelter is a manifestation of our ideas put together to tackle the distressing situation.”
