New Delhi, Apr 12 (ANI): Following successful launches in Perth and Sydney earlier this year, ride hailing platform Ola announced the launch of operations in Melbourne. In lieu of this, Ola is offering passengers free rides from Thursday, for a limited period of time. Following the launch of operations in Australia, Ola has been positively received and achieved 15,000 registrations across the region. Ola offers driver-partners a market low 7.5 percent introductory commission rate and daily payments, helping them earn more money and access it easily. Over the coming months, Ola is working with local stakeholders to continue its rollout in Australia, with future launch cities including Brisbane and the Gold Coast, Canberra, Adelaide, Darwin and Hobart.

These include updates to the Ola app and building its local support team that will help build a better ride share experience.
