Ola Share goes green to save more than just bucks

 Ola Share goes green to save more than just bucksOne of the World Environment Day slogans actually puts us to thinking – ‘Green Economy: Does it include you? The real question is ‘does it really include you?’

Don’t know if it is true for all, but Ola Cabs certainly is a true blue (rather true green) environment lover.

The cab company started Ola Share, an app-based service, which enables you to book a ride and share it with people you know traveling through the same route. Ola Share is a group service wherein each rider gets to pick the group of people they ride with. Thus, guaranteeing a safe trip for all.

The service was first launched in October 2015 in Bengaluru and is, presently, available in cities across India, such as, Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune, Mumbai, Kolkata, and Delhi. Gradually becoming prevalent amongst careful commuters, Ola Share targets at effectually decreasing the number of vehicles on the road resulting in reduced traffic congestion and pollution. This is a good option for commuters looking for the luxury of a cab at significantly reduced costs.

Ola Share’s launch in Bengaluru was a huge success as it received incredible acceptance from customers as well as driver partners in the city. It was introduced in Delhi on January 1, 2016, to restrain road crowding and pollution.

The ride share option simplifies the travel situation for citizens by letting them share their rides with users from their own social groups. Now colleagues or friends can get together to share Ola Cabs while a user can join several groups or simply choose to share a ride with anyone.

The users are matched with other users from their groups along their way. Ola believes that this Share service will help in making the Indian cities cleaner and greener by lessening pollution and jamming on road.

Ola Share is a step forward in bringing mobility for a billion people living in this country. The service will bring economy and convenience of commuting as well as help in the growth of deployment of vehicles to assisting more people at lesser cost.

Passengers are matched basis routes using technology as groups of riders start from their residential areas and end trip either in the same areas or a new locale depending on the destination. With this, riders have the advantage of a smaller expenditure while having lesser number of cars on the road. This pocket-friendly ride sharing option helps riders save up to 50% on Mini fares and lets them book up to 2 seats per booking. Ola Cabs’ regular safety features to track ride, SOS, etc., are applicable on ‘Share services as well.

Ola Share has contributed in saving several million car rides and over five lakh liters of fuel. But, most importantly, Ola Cabs’ Share service has stopped emission of more than 48 lakh Kgs of CO2 across India.
