Ola to enter in the UK starting with South Wales and Greater Manchester

Author at TechGenyz Startup
Ola Enters UK

Indian ride-hailing company Ola announced its plans today, August 7 to enter and expand in the United Kingdom.

The company has already received licenses for operating on the roads of South Wales and Greater Manchester, with plans to start by next month. Being one of the largest ride-hailing service providers in the world, Ola will become the only provider in the United Kingdom to offer PHVs (Private Hire Vehicles) and Black Cabs.

Its plans include additional transportation options to bring further conveniences to the passengers as per their choices. At present, it is working with the local authorities across the European sovereign country with the aim to expand by the end of this year.

Ola’s approach in prioritizing drivers generates industry-leading commissions that further result in high earnings including daily payments. The major ambition of the company is indeed to be a leader in the industry by keeping passenger safety before everything else, and the UK is one new dimension in its endeavor on global expansion.

Its facilities to ensure passenger safety include DBS screened drivers, 24/7 voice support, in-app emergency features, and options for sharing ride information with emergency contacts. It is as well recognized for collaborating with governments and authorities for taking care of transport mobility issues in practical and innovative ways.

Ola is excited to announce its plans for the UK, one of the world’s most evolved transportation markets. The UK is a fantastic place to do business and we look forward to providing a responsible, compelling, new service that can help the country meet its ever demanding mobility needs. We look forward to our continued engagement with policymakers and regulators as we expand across the country and build a company embedded in the UK. - Bhavish Aggarwal, Co-founder, and CEO at OLA

Starting today, Ola is welcoming PHV and meter taxi drivers in Newport, Cardiff, and Vale of Glamorgan for additional and innovative training on driving and to register with the company via drive.olacabs.com.
