Asian ride-sharing powerhouse Ola to expand into Australia

Australia’s ride-sharing ecosystem is set for a refreshing change after Ola, one of the world’s largest ride-sharing platforms, has announced its plans to enter Australia, providing both driver-partners and passengers a better way to move.

Founded in 2011, Ola enables smart transportation options to over 125 million users in India, through its network of over 1 million driver-partners that it hosts across 110+ cities. On an aggregate basis, Ola serves as many as a billion rides annually, through its platform.

Ola’s rapid growth and expansion have been made possible by taking a driver-partner focused approach to ride-sharing – investing in its partners to arm them with the necessary tools, skills, and incentives to offer best-in-class transport experiences. Ola is also recognised for its collaboration with governments and communities to solve local transport issues in innovative and meaningful ways.

Ola will build on these values as it launches in Australia in early 2018.
