Cab aggregator Ola extended its recently launched feature ‘Share Express’ to over 100 routes on Wednesday.
The feature will make ridesharing seamless and more affordable for customers making Ola Share rides further cheaper by 30 per cent, Ola CMO and Head of Categories Raghuvesh Sarup said in a statement.
“Our latest product feature for shared rides called Share Express, makes Ola Share even more affordable and flexible, with rides starting as low as Rs 30 for a 4 km ride.
Advanced algorithms match a customer only with others who are travelling on that fixed route,” he said.
It runs along popular fixed routes of a city and customers whose pickup and drop-off locations coincide with the fixed routes can book a ride from the Share icon on their Ola app, he added.
Sarup also said, Ola plans to extend the feature to over 300 routes in 10 cities in the near future.
“With the introduction of ‘Share Express,’ we aim to decongest the busiest routes in our busiest cities, while ensuring a quicker commute for our users,” he added.
