"Google provides cab service between office and home. It is one of the biggest perks in Bangalore. I live 12km away from office and I never have to wait for an Uber/Ola/Rapido. It helps me save a lot of money too," wrote Priyansh Agarwal in his post. (Also Read: Google techie on boss, half his team getting laid off at night: ‘My hands were shaking’)

He further added, "Of course, other companies do that too. Since the companies that I have worked at previously didn't provide this, it is new for me. This tweet in no way means that other companies don't provide a similar service."

Here's how people reacted:

An individual wrote, "But you still can't escape traffic. Working from home is better."

Another said, "Everything is included, and Companies get tax deductions, and they save huge. And employee retention gets easy for them by providing perks."

"The company where I work also provides cab service to employees. They charge 1400 per month for people with a salary of more than 30k, and for people with a salary of less than 30k, it's free. I think 1400 is extremely low considering that my office is beside the International airport," commented a third.

Someone else shared, "Almost every company provides that facility. Some for very nominal charges and some for free."
