First Uber, now Ola - the ridesharing market is set to expand in Orange.
One of the world's largest ridesharing platforms, Ola will be available to commuters across Orange and surrounds in the coming weeks.
The launch of the popular app is part of a national expansion for the popular ridesharing platform, with 18 new regional hubs set to take off Australia-wide by the end of February.
The company is actively recruiting rideshare drivers in the Orange area after becoming Australia's fastest-growing rideshare company, with both customers and drivers gaining from its strategy of offering competitive fares and regular deals to passengers.
Managing Director of Ola Australia and New Zealand, Simon Smith says offering services to the Orange region will bring more competition and choice to both rideshare users and drivers in the area.
"Since launching in this country two years ago, millions of Australians have benefited from riding with Ola and it's time we gave the same choice to people in Orange," Mr Smith said.
"We also want to offer drivers in the area the opportunity to make more money on their own schedule - whether it's driving on the weekend, during morning and evening commutes, or just in their spare time."
Ola has already attracted 75,000 drivers across Australia, by offering lower commissions than their largest competitor, helping drivers earn more on every Ola ride.
Customer experience lies at the heart of Ola's service with state-of-the-art safety features including an in-app emergency button which enables customers to instantly share important ride information with friends, family and emergency services.
Ola has recently launched an industry first security feature that sends users a one-time passcode, matching the right car with the right customer. Once passengers have booked an Ola ride via the app, they are sent a unique four-digit code which is then shared with the driver before the ride can begin.
Currently operating in Brisbane, the Gold Coast, the Sunshine Coast, Toowoomba, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra, Sydney, Newcastle, the Central Coast of NSW, Melbourne, Ballarat and Bendigo, as well as 15 locations in New Zealand, Ola has already experienced rapid growth and expansion across the Tasman.
