Integration allows metro commuters to recharge their metro smart cards directly from Ola Money app

Ola has tied up with Larsen & Toubro Hyderabad Metro Rail Ltd to offer metro commuters last mile 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 app. 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, Ola, said, “Over the last year, we have been integrating our smart mobility solutions with public utilities like railway stations, airports and metro stations. This partnership further reaffirms our commitment towards building first and last mile connectivity solutions and making mobility simpler, convenient and seamless for hundreds of thousands of Hyderabad Metro commuters.”

Anil Kumar Saini, Chief Operating Officer, LTHMRL, said, “The inauguration of 30 km of Hyderabad Metro Rail from Nagole to Miyapur has been successful with the ridership reaching a record 2.4 lakh recently. We are happy to collaborate with Ola as our mobility partner; now commuters will have uninterrupted connectivity to and from the metro stations.”

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