Ola teams up with Google to add ‘Outstation’ cabs to Maps

By : |August 23, 2017 0

Ola has entered into an inter-city travel partnership with Google to enable commuters to find and book outstation rides on Google Maps.

“Commuters travelling between cities will now be able to discover Ola Outstation, a smart mobility solution for inter- city travel on Google maps for mobile, thereby, directing customers to the Ola app to conveniently complete the booking,” the companies said in a statement.

The move enables bookings from 23 cities to over 215 one-way routes in the country and in the coming weeks, the integration would be expanded to 500 routes.

Once the destination is entered in on the Google Maps, the commuter can navigate to the transit tab and choose Ola as the commute option, upon which, he or she would be taken directly to the booking screen on the Ola app.

Ola launched Outstation cabs last year and also enabled one-way trips from 80 cities. Then, in October it integrated its intra-city cab travel options with Google maps, enabling customers to discover cab options with estimated fares and estimated time of arrival (ETA).
