Ola and Google join hands to bring Outstation cabs to Maps
Commuters travelling between cities will now be able to discover Ola Outstation on Google Maps for mobile, thereby, directing customers to the Ola app to conveniently complete the booking.
This first of its kind association in India enables bookings from 23 cities to over 215 one-way routes in the country. In the coming weeks, the integration will be expanded to a total of 500 routes. Covering a significant number of routes across cities such as Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Pune, Hyderabad, Chennai, and several others, the integration will bring a more fluid and convenient experience for travelers.
Once the destination is keyed in on Google Maps, the commuter can navigate to the transit tab and choose Ola as the commute option, upon which, they will be taken directly to the booking screen on the Ola app.
In October last year, Ola integrated its intra-city cab travel options with Google Maps, enabling customers to discover cab options with estimated fares and ETAs.
