Two-day first Auto Rickshaw driver partner Mela begins in Hyderabad

Hyderabad, May 19 (UNI ) The first 'Auto Rickshaw Driver Partner Mela' organised by Ola, India's most popular mobile app for transportation, began here today.

As leader in the mobility industry, Ola has put together a two-day event that will introduce the city's potential auto rickshaw driver partners to Ola's platform, and give them the opportunity to book auto rickshaws at subsidised rates.

In a bid to encourage micro-entrepreneurship, the mela is a unique opportunity for Ola driver partners to add auto rickshaws to their fleet at a lower cost with a plethora of additional benefits, Ola said in a statement here.

Such Melas, organised earlier in Chennai and Bengaluru, saw participation from thousands of driver partners.

Ola has announced the launch of such melas in 10 more cities across India, such as Mumbai, Delhi, and Pune over the course of the next few months.

More than 1.5-lakh autos ply in Hyderabad, making it one of most ubiquitous modes of transport in the city.

Ola as a platform has not only made auto rickshaw rides in the city convenient and seamless, but has also enabled steady incomes for thousands of auto rickshaw driver partners in the city.

The company expects a footfall of over 20,000 auto rickshaw driver partners at the two-day event in Hyderabad.

Moreover, top auto driver partners also stand a chance to win a brand new auto-rickshaw from Piaggio and other gifts such as gold, silver coins and sarees.
