New ridesharing option for Ballarat

Sturt Street

Ballarat residents will soon be spoilt for choice when it comes to rideshare options.

Ola is currently advertising for drivers in Ballarat on their website, and is already established in a number of capital cities and major regional areas around the country.

The company claims that they are a fairer alternative to other ridesharing services, such as Uber, with drivers able to keep 85 per cent of their fare.

Ola is considered the most popular transportation platform in India, and first came to Australia last year, launching in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.

The ridesharing service is also in the process of expanding to Bendigo, Newcastle and Toowoomba.

It’s expected the new service will be live in Ballarat before Christmas.
