Ola launches ride-hailing services in two new UK cities

Ride-hailing giant Ola on Tuesday launched its services in Coventry and Warwick, taking the total cities in the United Kingdom they are available in to nine.

Passengers have taken more than one million rides across the UK through Ola's ride-hailing app since the company launched in Cardiff in August 2018, according to the company.

The services were launched after local councils granted the company with both taxi and private hire licenses, Ola said.

"We are thrilled to expand our service to Coventry and Warwick, having launched in Birmingham earlier this year," Alok Pandya, Ola's Regional Manager for the West Midlands, Coventry and Warwick, said in a statement.

Passengers have taken more than one million rides across the UK through Ola's ride-hailing app since the company launched in Cardiff in August 2018, according to the company.

Ola last month announced the expansion of its Ola Bike service to 150 cities across India while planning to grow its presence three times in the next 12 months. 

"Ola Bike has enabled citizens from the smallest of towns, such as Chapra in Bihar to large metropolitan areas such as Gurgaon (Gurugram), access to quick, reliable and affordable mobility," said Arun Srinivas, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer at Ola.
