Ride-sharing app Ola starts operations in Sydney

Following a launch in Perth, Ola, a ridesharing platform from India, has now officially started operations in Sydney and has hired a local team to build partnerships and support driver-partners.

Sydneysiders can experience the new service at an introductory offer for free rides from March 12. Customers can download the Ola app from the Android or Apple App Store, register for an Ola account and begin booking rides. Rides can also be booked to and from Sydney Airport, for drop off and pick up in the designated ridesharing area.

Since launch in Perth, the service claims to have received over 7,000 registrations with driver-partners.

Chandra Nath, Vice President, Head of International, Ola said, “We are excited to officially start operating on the east coast with the launch in Sydney. We’ve been very pleased with how the service has been received by customers, driver-partners and the community in Perth, and can’t wait to continue building on these experiences and learnings for our second city launch.”

In the coming weeks, Ola will continue to roll out a number of new initiatives for both customers and driver-partners.
