Mumbai, December 16, 2016: Enabling easy and affordable last mile connectivity, Ola, India’s most popular mobile app for transportation, announced a special fare on Ola Share in Mumbai. Users will be able to hail an Ola Share at Rs. 35 from various metro and railway stations in Mumbai. The offer will be valid up to 5 km after which normal Share rates will apply. The special fares are also applicable at other high footfall areas like business parks, IT hubs and malls.

Karanveer Singh Shekhawat, Vice President - Operations at Ola, said, “Ola Share is one of our most widely adopted categories to date. Ola Share resonates with our vision of building smart and sustainable shared mobility for a billion Indians. Considering the current state of air pollution and traffic congestion in Mumbai, using a shared cab could put more people in fewer cars, reducing the burden on the environment and on our roads. Mumbai’s metro and railway stations serve hundreds and  thousands of commuters everyday who travel to similar locations in separate autos and other modes of transport. Introducing flat rates will effectively encourage them to share rides at affordable, convenient prices and help us create a greener future.” He further added, “Through these special fares, we are also aiming to solve the issues of last mile connectivity, which is often a pain point for a lot of daily commuters especially during extreme weather conditions and peak traffic timings.”

Ola Share enables economical fares and reduced congestion, since a ride can be shared by up to four people at any point in time. Now with this new special fares, the Ola Share experience becomes more affordable than ever. This becomes even more convenient considering that all these metro and railway stations have been enabled with convenient pick up points which a customer can choose from the app for the driver to locate him easily. Customers, who currently have to find a bus or auto after getting off the metro, will now have a completely seamless alternative at their fingertips.
