Cab aggregator Ola on Monday announced the expansion of its shared transportation platform Ola Share, to 3 new cities – Chandigarh, Jaipur and Ahmedabad. With this the platform is now available in 10 cities.

Ola’s ‘user matching algorithm’ has resulted in maximum matching of users headed the same way, as well as ‘same route sharing’ ensures Ola Share users don’t go out of their way as the cab picks up or drops other users sharing the same cab.

As a result the per kilometre fare for Ola Share has now been optimised to just R3, Ola said in a statement.

“Shared mobility is one of the key focus areas for Ola as it enables far reaching benefits like reduced pollution and congestion-free roads. We are constantly working to upgrade this experience for users as well as the driver-partners,” Raghuvesh Sarup, chief marketing officer and Head of Categories at Ola said.

The reduced fare is applicable in all the 10 cities Ola Share is operational in.

While Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Mumbai have emerged as top markets with some of the best ‘user matching algorithms’ and minimal en-route deviation percentages; Delhi, Bengaluru and Mumbai lead the race in terms of volume of transactions per day.
