Ola says #FarakPadtaHai on World Environment Day; offers free rides from mass transit hubs

New Delhi: On the occasion of World Environment Day, Taxi aggregator Ola has returned with its #FarakPadtaHai campaign, for the second year in a row.

Through this initiative, Ola encourages its customers at large to switch to shared mobility solutions.

“At Ola, we believe ridesharing has the power to change the social fabric of our country with #FarakPadtaHai acting as a catalyst. It is a key rallying point in Ola’s commitment to environmental sustainability and stewardship. Seeing the entire nation unite for a shared purpose and opt for shared mobility in large numbers is what has helped #FPH and Ola Share achieve such encouraging growth,” said Ola senior vice president Pallav Singh.

In the past one year, last mile commute emerged as the newest use case for Ola Share. To encourage this spirit of commuters, we’re delighted to offer 1 lakh free Ola Share rides from mass transit locations.” He added, “We encourage Ola customers and the community at large to integrate shared mobility into their daily lives and make it a ubiquitous form of commute,” he added
