MTV offers free Lit Cabs ride to voters in Mumbai today

Mumbaikars can avail of these cabs within a distance of 5 km from their polling booths. After reaching the destination, they have to click a selfie with their inked finger and the cab, and post it on social media by tagging @mtvindia, using hashtag #VoteBecauseYouCan

In an effort to applaud the efforts of people who chose to vote, youth brand MTV has partnered with Lit Cabs to offer ‘free’ rides to voters this Monday, April 29, in selected booths of Mumbai and its suburbs.

Mumbaikars can avail of these cabs and travel anywhere within a distance of 5 km from their nearest polling booths. After voting, all they have to do is show the inked finger to the cab driver, select a drop location within 5 km and join the ride. At the end, they will have to click a selfie with their inked finger and the cab, and post it on their social media by tagging @mtvindia and using the hashtag #VoteBecauseYouCan.
