Bangalore: Following a successful launch in Perth, Ola, one of the world’s largest ridesharing platforms, is now officially operating 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 today; 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.
Taking a refreshing approach to ridesharing, Ola’s focus is on investing in driver-partners and supporting them with new technology, training, and ways to increase earnings. Since launch in Perth, the service has received a strong response from driver-partners with over 7,000 registrations. By enabling driver-partners to provide the best experience possible, we know customers in turn will have a high-quality ride at an affordable price.
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. For customers this includes: new promotions, clear ways to share feedback, and a higher-quality ride as we support and enable our driver-partners to provide this.
For driver-partners this includes: new earnings programs, community town-halls, fuel offers and other vehicle services – alongside 24/7 partner support.
