Ben­galuru: Ola has ex­panded its two-wheeler taxi ver­ti­cal Ola Bike to 150 ci­ties as mi­cro-mo­bil­ity emerges as a pop­u­lar mode of last-mile trans­port for consumers. The Ben­galuru-based com­pany said it wants to ex­pand the ser­vice fur­ther in new towns and ci­ties over the next 12 months. It is aim­ing to grow the ver­ti­cal by three times in the next one year.

Based on dif­fer­ent models, star­tups like Vogo, Bounce and Rapido are ex­pand­ing ag­gres­sively as well. Ola said the two-wheeler ride shar­ing ser­vice has helped it en­ter­ing the hin­ter­lands of In­dia of­fer­ing a cheaper mode of on-de­mand trans­porta­tion there. Th­ese bike rides are cheaper than the cab-rides on Ola, thus gain­ing pop­u­lar­ity among users.

“Ola Bike has en­abled cit­i­zens from the smallest of towns such as Chapra in Bi­har to large metropoli­tan ar­eas such as Gur­gaon with ac­cess to quick, re­li­able and af­ford­able mo­bil­ity. We aim to im­pact over a mil­lion bikepart­ners in the com­ing year,” said Arun Srini­vas, chief sales and mar­ket­ing officer, Ola. At present, it claims to have about 3,00,000 such part­ners.
