Agra: Providing smart and sustainable mobility solutions to tens of thousands of visitors at this year’s ‘Taj Mahotsav’, Ola, India’s most popular mobile app for transportation, partnered with the Uttar Pradesh State Tourism Development Corporation successfully. As the festival’s official mobility partner, Ola had rolled out several offers and discounts for commuters across Agra. Under this association, Ola launched dedicated ‘Ola Zones’ at the festival premises to facilitate mobility solutions to lakhs of commuters. Manned by Ola representatives, commuters were able to take assistance in booking a ride, thereby making the experience more convenient. The ‘Ola zones’ also worked as pick up and drop off points for the customers; and also had exclusive parking areas for Ola vehicles.
The 10-day long festival that concludes on March 27, 2017 saw tens of thousands of patrons from across the world flocking to Agra. The sheer number of people that attend this marquee event tends to put a lot of stress on the existing transportation infrastructure. The association with Ola enabled easy and affordable transportation for commuters and also reduced the expected time of arrival (ETA) of the vehicles to as low as 2 minutes. Apart from strengthening the intra-city commuting requirements, Ola also rolled out special offers on Ola’s smart mobility solution for inter-city travel, Ola Outstation, for visitors from neighbouring cities like Delhi, Jaipur, Kanpur, Jhansi, Gwalior and Lucknow.
Speaking on the partnership Dinesh Kumar, Secretary, Taj Mahotsav Samiti, Uttar Pradesh Tourism said, “Attracting lakhs of tourists every year, Taj Mahotsav has emerged as an enormous success; and its popularity has been increasing with each passing year. Tourists from across the world come here to experience the culture and heritage of our country and hence it becomes important for us to ensure that they are able to travel in and out of the city in the most comfortable manner. We would like to appreciate Ola for providing a seamless transportation experience to all the visitors in our city and look forward to their participation in strengthening the mobility infrastructure of the city.”
Deep Singh, Business Head – North, Ola, said, “It is a matter of immense pride for Ola to be associated with Taj Mahotsav, a festival that showcases the cultural diversity of the country to the world and attracts enthusiasts from world-over. Given our expertise in providing smart and sustainable mobility options across the country, we bring the same technology knowhow and experience to offer smart and affordable mobility solutions at this festival. Through Ola zones’ and dedicated parking spots for cabs, commuters can enjoy an added comfort of uninterrupted travel experience. Similarly, with Ola Outstation, the inter-city travelers could also experience seamless transportation to and from the festival.”
The Ola platform offers varied smart and sustainable commuting options like Ola Micro, Ola Mini, Ola Sedan and Ola Autos to the travellers in the city. With the introduction of new categories such as Ola Rentals and Ola Outstation, the Company is enabling seamless mobility for visitors. In the past, Ola has also provided requisite support for some of India’s biggest cultural events including the famous ‘Rath Yatra’ in Puri and the ‘Ambubachi Mela’ in the city of Guwahati.
