Yes, even at 4 a.m., you can hail an Ola cab. However, it is dependent on your location and the amount of cabs available. Alternatively, you may use the Ride Later option in OLA cabs to make a prior booking. The service costs the same as any other Ola car rental.
Yes. It's a fantastic time to run at any hour, but at 4 a.m. (usually), there are no other people around, so it's serene, there are less automobiles, it's quiet, and you can just enjoy the run. You can cross intersections with ease, and the streets are all yours. Simply keep your eyes and ears alert to ensure your safety.
The morning is the best time for running because most cities do not have as many vehicles on the road at that hour, so you have a better chance of making it across intersections without getting hit by cars, etc. Also, the sun is rising which makes it a perfect time because you can see what's ahead, and you're not struggling against the darkness of night.
Some people may think that running in the dark is safer because you cannot be seen, but this is not true because drivers have headlights on their cars that let them see clear for miles ahead of them, so you should still use caution when out running at night.
In conclusion, running at 4 a.m. is safe as long as you follow some basic safety rules. However, if you want to reduce your risk even more, then try to run during the day or in larger cities when more people are awake and about.
Ola already has a presence in Rajasthan, with offices in Jaipur, Udaipur, Kota, Ajmer, and Jodhpur, whereas Uber just has a presence in Jaipur. The two companies are going head to head for business.
Ola is also available in some other cities across India including Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Delhi, Gurgaon, Pune, Mumbai. However, these are only licensed drivers of Ola who have been approved by the company. There are no official figures on the number of vehicles on the road through Ola or Uber in India but they are expected to rise quickly given the popularity of both the services.
In October 2015, Ola had over 5 million rides with a monthly average of 40,000 rides per day. In February 2016, it crossed the 10 million ride milestone. As of May 2016, Ola claims to have over 12 million rides worldwide, with a quarter of them being in India. It also has over 600 employees in India.
Uber started operations in India in April 2014. It offers a similar service as its American counterpart but instead of using cars, it uses non-commercial vehicles (NCVs) or private cars driven by independent contractors.
It is considered the middle of the night at 2:00 a.m. However, the night officially lasts from 12:00 a.m. until 6:00 a.m. However, because of the summertime impact, we consider it shorter. So, you are correct; the morning begins at 4 a.m. and not earlier.
The average monthly wage for an Ola driver is Rs. 40,000. Driver pay at Ola might range between Rs 15,000 to Rs 3,61,196 per month. However, the majority of drivers (95%) earn less than Rs 40,000 per month.
Ola has a tie-up with over 5 million other people as drivers on its platform. This makes the company's workforce of over 10,000 employees one of the largest in India. Ola claims that it pays around 70% of its revenue to its owners, Alphabet and Amazon. The remaining 30% goes towards paying staff and other expenses.
Drivers are required to register themselves with Ola by providing details such as name, age, gender, photo, location, mobile number and email ID. They then need to create a free Ola account before they can be registered as a driver. After being registered, they can log in to their accounts to track their jobs and get paid through PayPal or Bank Account.
Drivers are required to have a vehicle with a valid license available for use with Ola. They can choose either of our cars from the existing pool or hire one ourselves. In addition, they are expected to maintain their vehicles properly. Drivers are not allowed to change their job status while their vehicles are active with us.
