Australia has a new ride-share company in its market. Ola, an Indian company, has launched in Sydney, a few weeks after launching in Perth.
Ola was founded in 2011 and has a massive offering with over 125 million users, however until this year, that offering had been limited to just India, with the company picking Australia as its first foray into international markets.
