With the launch in these three markets, Ola Autos are now available in 12 cities across India, including Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Pune, Chandigarh, Indore and Jaipur.
Ola Autos are available 24×7 in all the three cities, at Rs. 5 kilometer, with an ETA of less than 5 minutes, the company said. Typically, autorickshaws charge between Rs 10-25 per km, except in Chennai, where charges can go up to Rs 50 per km.
Ola has also launched a new billing system that will record the details of the trip including time of booking, distance travelled and fare payable, either in cash or through Ola Money. Users can request a bill on completion of their ride from the Ola app.
Each auto on the Ola platform is powered with a GPS enabled smartphone with the Ola app for drivers that allows driver-partners access to continuous demand from customers around them. Auto driver-partners are notified of booking requests on their smartphones and are given navigation to reach the customer’s doorstep on accepting a booking request.
