Another ride sharing service has joined the likes of Uber and Taxify in Australia – Indian-based Ola.

The company began launching in capital cities across the country Tuesday, adding to the growing rift between traditional taxis and mobile-app ordering services.

Amassing more than 125 million users in its home country, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth will be added to the 110 Indian cities it already services. 

Through its network of more than one million driver-partners, Ola caters to up to a billion riders annually using a ‘private hire vehicle’ system.

‘We are very excited about launching Ola in Australia and see immense potential for the ride-sharing ecosystem which embraces new technology and innovation,’  co founder Bhavish Aggarwal said. 

‘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.’

Using the Ola mobile app, users can connect with over one million driver-partners across cabs, auto-rickshaws, and taxis.  

The company credits its rapid growth and expansion to its driver-partner focused approach to ride-sharing, including ‘investing in its partners to arm them with the necessary tools, skills and incentives to offer best-in-class transport experiences.’

Ola is inviting private hire vehicle owners in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth to learn more about driving and registering with Ola by visiting drive.olacabs.com.
