Ola added that it will be the only ride-hailing app in the UK to offer passengers the option of Private Hire Vehicles (PHVs) and Black Cabs through one app, which will see additional transportation options being incorporated in the future.
The Bengaluru-based company will include DBS screened drivers and processes such as 24/7 voice support, options to share ride details with emergency contacts and in-app emergency features for passengers' safety.
"Ola is excited to announce its plans for the UK, one of the world’s most evolved transportation markets. The UK is a fantastic place to do business and we look forward to providing a responsible, compelling, new service that can help the country meet its ever demanding mobility needs," Ola co-founder and CEO Bhavish Aggarwal said.
Over 40,000 drivers across Australia have registered with it since the launch in February.
