Ride-hailing platform Ola announced on Tuesday that it has launched its services in Coventry and Warwick in the United Kingdom.
For the past three weeks, drivers from across these communities have been busy in training, after local councils granted Ola with both taxi and private hire licenses – a first for these areas, it said in a statement.
Alok Pandya, Ola’s Regional Manager for the West Midlands, Coventry and Warwick, said: “We are thrilled to expand our service to Coventry and Warwick, having launched in
Birmingham earlier this year.
We feel immensely proud that our drivers have already provided over one million rides across the UK.”
Ola, which has over 1.5 million drivers across 250 cities in Australia, New Zealand, the UK and India, has started operations in Queensland’s Sunshine Coast in early August this year, expanding its services in Australia.
Few weeks back, Ola had obtained license to launch a self-drive car rental service, from the Karnataka State Transport Department. Last month, Ola expanded its ‘Ola Bike’ offering to 150 cities in India and is looking to scale up its presence further to newer cities over the next 12 months.
