Ola is India’s biggest mobility platform and one of the world’s top ride-hailing firms, with 250+ cities in India, Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. The Ola app provides mobility solutions by linking clients to drivers and a diverse variety of vehicles such as motorcycles, auto-rickshaws, metered taxis, and cabs, allowing hundreds of millions of consumers and over 1.5 million driver-partners ease and transparency.

In India, Ola’s main mobility service is supported by its electric-vehicle branch, Ola Electric; India’s largest fleet management firm, Ola Fleet Technologies; and Ola Skilling, which seeks to provide millions of job opportunities for India’s youth. Ola is seeking to develop mobility for the next billion Indians through the acquisition of Ridlr, India’s largest public transit app, and investment in Vogo, a dockless scooter sharing solution. Ola also provides consumer services such as micro-insurance and credit-based payments through Ola Financial Services, as well as a variety of owned food brands via India’s biggest network of kitchens through its Food division.

Bhavish Aggarwal and Ankit Bhati launched Ola in December 2010 with the goal of creating mobility for a billion people.
