Supporting the Government's efforts to combat the poor air quality in the Delhi-NCR region, ride-hailing company Ola on Saturday announced that there will be no peak pricing on rides during the period of the Odd-Even scheme in New Delhi between November 4-15, 2019.
The company will also work closely with its driver-partners to ensure maximum availability of vehicles during peak hours as well as during the staggered timings identified by the government to serve additional demand on the platform.
Driver-partners logging on to the Ola platform during peak hours will help ensure the successful implementation of the odd-even scheme by the government, by reducing the number of unshared vehicles from the roads of the National Capital.
Arun Srinivas, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer at Ola said, "As an organization that is committed to building for the future, Ola extends its support to the Delhi Government's initiative to curb pollution. The implementation of the Odd-Even Scheme offers an opportunity to further unlock the potential of shared mobility. We are ensuring that all our services across cabs, autos, bikes and shared cabs, will be available.
Ola will have no peak pricing on rides booked on the Ola platform during the Odd-Even period, he added.
