Ola goes Green in Delhi!

Delhi-In-App-08Ola has continuously innovated on how it has delivered affordable, convenient transportation to consumers from all walks of life. Be it bringing cabs to your door-step or introducing various modes of payment. We are now working closely with the authorities towards the vision of a Cleaner & Greener Delhi

As you might have read, we have already started enabling large scale adoption of CNG vehicles for our driver partners . In this journey, we are also replacing our existing mini, Sedan, Prime and TFS categories (only in Delhi – not in NCR) with two simple categories – WITHIN DELHI & DELHI TO NCR.

WITHIN DELHI – This category would be for users who are in Delhi and want to travel within Delhi and would be serviced by our all-CNG fleet of cabs

DELHI TO NCR – This category would be for users who are in Delhi and want to travel to NCR(Gurgaon, Faridabad, Noida etc) and would be serviced by our inter-state cabs:

While these changes might result in some inconvenience in the short-run, we assure you that we are committed to work with the authorities in ensuring seamless transportation for all Delhites! For those who open the app outside the Delhi region (in Gurgaon, Faridabad, Noida etc) they will see normal categories (mini,sedan,prime).As a bonus, pricing for all cabs irrespective of whether it is a hatchback, sedan or SUV, would remain at our mini prices.

In case you have queries, do visit our blog <blog link> for an exhaustive list of FAQs to help you through this change.

Our aim is to provide affordable transportation while furthering the commitment towards ensuring a cleaner & greener Delhi.
