Ola launches ride share in Melbourne

By

Ride-sharing service Ola has launched in Melbourne and has flagged future launches in Brisbane and the Gold Coast, Canberra, Adelaide, Darwin and Hobart.

The Melbourne launch of the ride-sharing platform follows launches in Perth and Sydney earlier this year.

To mark the Melbourne launch, Ola, dubbed one of the world’s largest ride-sharing platforms, is offering customers free rides from today, with the app downloaded either from Google Play, or iOS App Store.

According to Ola, it continues to receive a positive response from driver-partners with more than 15,000 registrations across Australia. It offers driver-partners a 7.5% introductory commission rate and daily payments.  

“We've been humbled by the response from customers and driver-partners alike in Perth and Sydney, and are incredibly excited about launching Ola in Melbourne,” said Chandra Nath, vice-president and head of International, Ola.

"We hope customers and driver-partners continue to share their feedback to help us improve our service, as we continue on our journey to provide Australia with the best rideshare experience possible.”

Ola says it is developing a number of new initiatives for its customers and driver-partners, including updates to the Ola app, and building a local support team that will help build a better ride-share experience.
