Railways ties up with Ola for last mile connectivity
Railways has partnered with ride-sharing company, Ola to facilitate last mile connectivity at its five key stations in Delhi, the national transporter said today. Through this partnership, passengers at these stations will now be able to book cabs with the assistance of Ola representatives stationed at its kiosks within the station premises itself. Here's more about it.
Ola Zones have also been set up at each of these stations: New Delhi, Old Delhi, Anand Vihar, Sarai Rohilla and Nizamuddin, providing dedicated parking to the cabs thereby helping in easing out the parking and traffic issues. These zones will work as dedicated pick-up and drop points and will bring down the expected time of arrival of cabs to as-low-as two minutes.
"The Delhi Railway Division is an integral part of inter-city as well as inter-state transport. Ola is honored to partner with them to help strengthen the mobility ecosystem," said Ola's spokesperson. "All of this enables a consistent experience for users. In case of an emergency, customers can also reach out to Ola's 24x7 helpline, directly from the app," the statement from Northern Railways said.
