Ride-share company OLA has rolled out its services to Brisbane, Gold Coast and Canberra. This supplements services in Perth, Sydney and Melbourne.

To celebrate the launch Canberrans can get up to 50% off the first 15 rides per week. Brisbanians and Gold Coasters can get a $20 discount on the first ride.

OLA is one of the largest, global ride-share companies. It has announced a milestone – it has signed up 30,000 driver partners since its launch last February. Drivers appreciate the low commission rate and daily payments.

It pioneered the in-cab panic button in India and now has an in-app SOS and customer hotline to better service users.

By doing so, everyone is choosing an affordable and better way to move.”

Over the coming months, Ola is working with local stakeholders to continue its rollout in Australia, with future launch cities including Adelaide, Darwin and Hobart.
