Ride-sharing platform Ola has announced its move into Australia’s transport system, providing both drivers and passengers with an alternative mode of travel.
Founded in 2011, Ola currently brings smart transportation options to over 125 million users in India, moving over 2 million people every day. With a network across over 110 cities, Ola has over 1 million driver-partners within its ride-sharing platform.
The company’s rapid growth is a result of their driver-partner approach which invested in its partners and supplied them with the required tools, skills and incentives, creating high quality transportation services.
These values will be continued as the organisation launches into Australia, private hire vehicle owners in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth have already been invited to learn more about driving and have been given the opportunity to register with Ola.
“We are very excited about launching Ola in Australia and see immense potential for the ride-sharing ecosystem which embraces new technology and innovation,” said Bhavish Aggarwal, co-Founder and CEO of Ola. “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.”
The commencement of commercial operations is subject to necessary regulatory approvals but the company are optimistic. Ola has already been recognised for its collaboration with governments and communities to solve local transport issues in innovative and meaningful ways.
