Ola had already launched the service in Perth

A month after starting its worldwide operations in Perth in Australia, Indian online cab aggregator Ola said it has begun offering rides in Sydney through its local driver-partners.

Ola stated that it will provide introductory offer along with free rides for the customers in Sydney from today.

On 30 January, the company had announced that it was starting operations in Australia to enter into the global market to rival US-based Uber.

Following a successful launch in Perth, Indian ridesharing platform Ola has announced the official launch of its operations in Sydney, and has hired a local team to build partnerships and support driver-partners.
