Introducing Ola Pedal!

Introducing Ola Pedal!

Imagine covering a 15 minute walk within your college campus or office premises in just a matter of few minutes, or feeling the wind in your hair when you take a short ride during your office breaks, better yet, hopping between buildings without breaking a sweat. Yes it’s now possible to do so.  

Ola launches Ola Pedal, a dockless Public Bike Sharing Cycle (PBS) service. Made in India, these are App based Smart Cycles with GPS enabled locks, making them safe and secure once you are done riding. Which means you can reserve the nearest cycle through the app, ride to your nearby destination and drop it off where you want.

Now commuting in congested areas has become very easy. You can very conveniently book an Ola Pedal through the Ola app, make hassle free cashless payments and also unlock your bike from the app.

That’s not all! With convenient and comfortable features like tubeless tyres, special ergo grips, palm support and an attractive design overall; riding an Ola Pedal is a breezy affair for its riders.

Why should you use Ola Pedal:

  •   Quick & Convenient
  •   Extremely pocket-friendly
  •   Fixed rates
  •   Helps you stay active
  •   Eco-friendly

Ola Pedal is already a big hit in IIT Kanpur and IIT Madras campus with over 500 cycles. 

Do your Share with Ola and Virat Kohli.

Yes, we all know that the smog situation has worsened and we all want it curbed. It’s time for each one of us to take a step and do our bit, so that collectively we can make a difference.

And in our fight against air-pollution, we are joined by none other than Virat Kohli.

The Indian Captain’s thoughts echoes ours and like us he thinks that shared mobility is the way forward. He knows Ola Share, metro train ya buses lene se #FarakPadtaHai.

We promised that if his post got 5000 RTs, we would give  free rides for all Ola Share users, once every week, for the rest of the year. And unsurprisingly, it did.  So starting Wednesday, first time Share users can avail free Share rides.

Let’s do our share. #FarakPadtaHai

Technology Access to build a Swachh Bharat

Millions of Indians are commemorating Gandhi Jayanthi this year by participating in the nationwide Swachhata Hi Seva movement. This is a fitting tribute to Bapu and his vision of a truly independent India, by being an example for cleanliness.

At Ola, we are committed to the Swachhata mission and we continue to take major steps to help improve cleanliness around us and in the communities we work with. Hundreds of thousands of driver partners on our platform across a 110 cities, serve mobility needs of millions of Indians, every single day. For these entrepreneurs, their car is their workplace.

This October 2nd, we are integrating technology to help create access for our 800,000+ driver-partners; helping them find public toilets around them when on the road, through their in-car devices. With this, we positively affect their personal hygiene and quality of life.

Here’s a glimpse of this integration on our partner devices.

Driver partners can click on the Navigate icon when in between bookings to find their nearest Public Toilets.

The screen will then show them public toilets that are in their current vicinity.

Driver partners can choose the nearest or most convenient option and navigate to a toilet around them.

We are also looking to integrate existing technology that driver-partners can use, to share data around civic issues that come to their notice while they are on the roads everyday, as they go about serving millions of customers like you with your mobility needs.

Without doubt, small steps like these will go a long way in building a superior experience for you from our empowered driver-partners. We look forward to your support in building a Swachh Bharat!
