Taxi aggregator OLA today announced the launch of ‘Ola Share’ on its platform in Bhubaneswar.
Ola Share enables economical fares and reduced congestion, since a ride can now be shared by up to three people at any point in time. Customers benefit from up to 50% discount on cab fares.
Launched in October 2015, Ola Share has received tremendous acceptance from both customers and driver partners, the company claimed.
What is OLA Share?
Ola Share allows you to book a cab ride, and share the same with trusted fellow commuters. We’ll connect you with other travellers on the go- without the need to plan, de-tour or wait for other passengers to join.
Who do I share my ride with?
You share your ride with the people you choose. All riders have to join one or more groups and travellers will be matched with riders from their group only. You can join a group based on one or more common aspects- your location, your workplace, your gender, etc. Keeping the safety, privacy and comfort of the passenger as a priority – groups are our way of ensuring you will never ride with a stranger.
With better utilisation of vehicles on the road, many more cars can be taken off the road every single day. This will go a long way in making our cities cleaner and greener; and reducing road congestion. All of Ola’s security features like Track your Ride, Share Ride Details, SOS, Emergency Contacts, 24×7 Customer Support and Number Masking are available for users on Ola Share.
A recent report by Odisha State Pollution Control Board revealed that city’s air pollution levels are increasing at alarming rate. With vehicular pollution accounting for 40% of air pollution in the Bhubaneswar, there is a compelling need for shared mobility in the city to enable an eco friendly transport solution.
