Delhi Summer Festival is a three-day cultural extravaganza that is a treat for all senses and boasts of the Mango-eating competition that has been the major draw of visitors in the previous editions.

Shri Kapil Mishra, Hon’ble Minister of Tourism, Govt of Delhi said, “This festival has been witnessing tens of thousands of visitors every year. This year, we have merged the annual mango festival with the first-ever summer festival. The free rides enabled by Ola will be a pleasant surprise for visitors attending the event.”

Sundeep Sahni, Vice President – New Initiatives at Ola said, “Ola Shuttle is excited to be associated with Delhi Summer Festival. It is attended by thousands of Delhiites. Given our expertise in providing shared mobility options to citizens across many Indian cities, we brought the same technology know how and experience to address the last mile connectivity for patrons attending the festival.”

In Delhi, Ola Shuttle recently supported Government’s odd-even initiative by enabling free rides across the city for people on 2 days during the experiment.

Ola Shuttle also deployed 500 special buses on New Year’s Eve to help thousands of citizens in Delhi NCR reach home safely post partying and celebrations.
