    • The Share feature
      will be made available in a phased manner to all users in Delhi over the coming week, the company said,
      with a flat 50 percent discount on fares in the launch phase to encourage users
      to share rides.

    • Ola Share was first
      rolled out as a beta version in Bengaluru in October. All of Ola’s safety
      features are available on Ola Share, and only CNG vehicles will be utilized for
      such bookings within Delhi,
      the company said.

    • “Ola is
      committed to building mobility for a billion Indians and with the launch of Ola
      Share in the national capital, we are taking a major step in that
      direction,” said Ishan Gupta, Head – Ola Share.
    •  
    • For Delhi users, Ola Share will appear on the Ola
      app as a separate category. On sharing the drop location, the Ola app uses
      advanced algorithms to match users from common social groups, looking for a cab
      on the same route, in real time, the company said.
    •  
    • When additional users
      en-route are identified, the driver’s device gets an alert with navigation to
      their pickup location within minutes, to join the ride. Driver-partners get
      increased revenue of up to 50 percent, Ola claimed.

    • Uber had also launched
      its carpooling feature in Bengaluru in September, and announced plans to introduce
      the initiative in Delhi
      a few days ago.
