Ola enters Australia
As part of its international expansion, Ola, India’s most popular transportation platform, has begun on-boarding private hire vehicles (PHVs) and driver-partners in Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth starting today
Ola, one of the world’s largest ride-sharing platforms, has today announced its plans to enter Australia, providing both driver-partners and passengers a better way to move.
“We are very excited about launching Ola in Australia and see immense potential for the ride-sharing ecosystem which embraces new technology and innovation. With a strong focus on driver-partners and the community at large, we aim to create a high-quality and affordable travel experience for citizens and look forward to contributing to a healthy mobility ecosystem in Australia,” said Bhavish Aggarwal, Co-Founder & CEO, Ola.
Founded in 2011, Ola enables smart transportation options to over 125 million users in India, through its network of over 1 million driver-partners that it hosts across 110+ cities. On an aggregate basis, Ola serves as many as a billion rides annually, through its platform. Ola’s rapid growth and expansion have been made possible by taking a driver-partner focused approach to ride-sharing – investing in its partners to arm them with the necessary tools, skills, and incentives to offer best-in-class transport experiences. Ola is also recognized for its collaboration with governments and communities to solve local transport issues in innovative and meaningful ways.
Ola will build on these values as it launches in Australia in early 2018. Starting today Ola is inviting private hire vehicle owners in Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth to learn more about driving and registering with Ola by visiting http://drive.olacabs.com
