Ola teams up with MapmyIndia for better navigation

Taxi aggregator Ola on Friday announced its partnership with MapmyIndia by acquiring a multi-year licence.

“Through this partnership, Ola will get complete access to mapping data from MapmyIndia, which has the IP ownership for the most comprehensive, accurate and updated digital map data for the country,” Ola co-founder and CTO Ankit Bhati said in a statement.

This “first-of-its-kind” partnership in the country would also enable consistent map updates from MapmyIndia to Ola, making the data rich and relevant, he said.

“Ridlr has a strong integration with BEST and Ola has been looking at ways to seamlessly integrate into the city’s public transportation system, so that Ola will eventually have riders that use not only cabs, but buses and trains as well. This acquisition will enable accurate tracking of public transportation options, as accurate as what Ola is currently offering for its cabs on the app,” said an employee, speaking anonymously to ET.
