Ola, a ridesharing platform based in India, expands to three regions in New Zealand: Auckland, Christchurch, and Wellington.
Passengers will have access to quality rides and safety features on the app, including an in-app emergency button that allows users to instantly share ride information with family, friends, and emergency services with 24/7 support.
“Ola’s arrival will create a compelling experience that puts the quality of rides first,” Brian Dewil, country manager New Zealand at Ola, said in a statement. “I’m excited to build the local team and business in New Zealand and provide a healthy contribution to the nation’s local mobility infrastructure.”
Following its launch in New Zealand and in Australia and the U.K. earlier this year, Ola now operates in more than 110 cities.
