Ola partners Hyderabad Metro Rail to offer last-mile linkage

Our Bureau Hyderabad | Updated on January 09, 2018

Ola has announced its partnership with L&T Metro Rail Hyderabad Ltd to offer metro consumers last-mile connectivity.

Another agreement was entered into recently by Uber with the metro rail to provide connectivity.

Under the partnership, TSavaari, the official Hyderabad Metro Rail app has integrated Ola’s services, including Ola Money. The integration allows metro commuters to recharge their metro smart cards directly from the Ola Money app.

Commuters will also have an option to pay from their Ola Money wallet on the TSavaari app. Additionally, users will be able to book an Ola cab or Ola auto directly from their TSavaari apps.

The partnership will also enable on-ground integration as commuters will now be able to book a cab with the assistance of Ola representatives stationed at Ola kiosks within the station premises. Ola zones will work as dedicated pick-up and drop-off points for customers.

Saurabh Mishra, Director – Alliances at Ola, said, “Over the last year, we have been integrating our smart mobility solutions with public utilities such as railway stations, airports and metro stations.”

Anil Kumar Saini, Chief Operating Officer, LTHMRL, said, “We are happy to collaborate with Ola as our mobility partner. Now commuters will have uninterrupted connectivity to and from the metro stations.”

Ola had recently partnered with Rapid Metro Gurgaon and Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd to equip key metro stations with Ola kiosks. The company aims to replicate this model with other key public utility spaces across the country.
