Resuming its operations post the lockdown in across 200 cities in the country, and with a new initiative, 'Ride Safe India,' the ride-hailing unicorn is now open for recruiting.

In 2018, Ola extended its services to the overseas markets in Australia, New Zealand and UK. In February 2020, it launched its operations in London with over 25,000 registered drivers.
