OLA India’s largest cab service provider started Green cabs in Delhi. Ola written in it’s blog that we continuously innovated on how it has delivered affordable, convenient transportation to consumers from all walks of life. Be it bringing cabs to your door-step or introducing various modes of payment. We are now working closely with the Delhi authorities towards the vision of a Cleaner & Greener Delhi.
As you might have read, we have already started enabling large scale adoption of CNG vehicles for our driver partners. In this journey, we are also replacing our existing mini, Sedan, Prime and TFS categories (only in Delhi – not in NCR) with two simple categories – WITHIN DELHI & DELHI TO NCR.
WITHIN DELHI – This category would be for users who are in Delhi and want to travel within Delhi and would be serviced by our all-CNG fleet of cabs.
DELHI TO NCR – This category would be for users who are in Delhi and want to travel to NCR(Gurgaon, Faridabad, Noida etc) and would be serviced by our inter-state cabs.
As a bonus, pricing for all cabs irrespective of whether it is a hatchback, sedan or SUV, would remain at our mini prices.
“We are committed to CNG adoption in the state of Delhi. The intention behind coming up with this scheme is to create a valuable opportunity for all those drivers who are planning to buy new cars or willing to exchange their old cars to consider buying a CNG vehicle and contribute to a clean and green Delhi,” Deep Singh, Business Head – North at Ola said. “With this, livelihoods of thousands of driver partners on the Ola platform will be protected and they can continue to work as entrepreneurs with us.”
*Ride time charges of Rs.1/min will apply. While these changes might result in some inconvenience in the short-run, we assure you that we are committed to work with the authorities in ensuring seamless transportation for all Delhiites! For those who open the app outside the Delhi region (in Gurgaon, Faridabad, Noida etc) they will see normal categories (mini, sedan, prime).
