Together with Ludhiana, Ola’s Auto service is now available in 4 cities in Punjab and 71 cities across the country.

I have been on Ola for one and a half month now and I have seen a steady increase in my daily income. I am thankful for the training that Ola has given me regarding the app and engaging with the passengers.
