Ola expands in Australia, begins service in Sydney

Indian cab hailing firm Ola said it has started operations in Sydney, expanding its services in the Australian market.

Last month, the company had kick-started its services in Australia with Perth. In January, the SoftBank-backed company had announced its plans to foray into the Australian market.

Ola is now officially operating in Sydney and has hired a local team to build partnerships and support driver-partners, it said in a statement.

“Ola’s focus is on investing in driver-partners and supporting them with new technology, training, and ways to increase earnings,” it added.

Uber is Ola’s main competitor in the Australian market. Interestingly, SoftBank is also an investor in Uber.

Uber launched its operations in Australia in 2012 and currently operates in 19 Australian cities including the major cities of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Canberra.
