Ola, announced the launch of‘One way’ trip fares on Ola Outstation, Ola’s smart mobility solution for inter-city travel, to over 50 key cities from Delhi NCR. With this, Ola Outstation becomes the only inter-city mobility solution providing rides to over 50 destinations from Delhi NCR, on one way trip fares. Bringing more flexibility, convenience and cost-effectiveness to the recently launched Ola Outstation; the introduction of ‘One-way’ fares allows customers to avail one-way bookings at reduced fares. This has been made possible due to the sheer scale of Ola, as the largest transportation platform, connecting 500+ cities and towns across India with its unique Outstation offering.
From Delhi NCR, Ola Outstation provides one way trip fare rides to most sought after tourist locations like Agra, Chandigarh, Jaipur and Dehradun; popular pilgrimage locations like Mathura, Haridwar and Kurukshetra; and major industrial zones like Meerut, Sonipat, Bhiwadi and Bawal to name a few. Using ‘one-way’ fares feature, inter-city commuters from Delhi can travel to cities like Jaipur, Chandigarh, Agra, Dehradun, Haridwar starting at Rs. 11 per kilometer; making Ola Outstation one of the most affordable inter-city transportation platforms available in the market.
Deep Singh, Business Head – North at Ola, said, “Delhi has been a key connecting centre in the northern part of the country; and people travelling to various cities from Delhi often face issues with transportation as intercity travel in the country is fairly unorganized and consumers do not really have affordable or convenient transport solutions. With Ola Outstation, we are aiming to make outstation travel as convenient and reliable as daily commute. While the Outstation in itself is extremely affordable, the added advantage of ‘One-Way’ fares makes it much more effective and sustainable, reaching out to a larger use case. Commuters can not only book an Ola Outstation in advance but can also rely on it for their last-minute weekend getaways.” He further added, “Through Ola Outstation, we are now connecting over 50 cities and are charging one way trip fares, putting Ola ahead of all others in the intercity transportation segment. Ola Outstation and one way trip fare feature is smart, sustainable and hyper-local; that will play a pivotal role in achieving our mission of building mobility solutions for a billion Indians.”
Ola Outstation comes with the best fleet of cars and trained, verified and top rated driver partners. To ensure that a customer enjoys a smooth & comfortable on-road experience, every cab on the Outstation category goes through a stringent 22 point check. ‘One way’ trips have already been rolled out in more than 10 key cities and the number of cities are set to grow substantially over the next few months.
