To bridge the gap between customers and taxi drivers, Ola has announced the launch of the Kaali-Peeli taxi booking option in its app for users in Mumbai.
The traditional black and yellow taxis of Mumbai, locally popular as Kaali-Peelis, can now be booked for a ride using the Ola app, that acts only as a booking interface. Available for Android, iOS and Windows, the app will show you all the available taxi drivers in your area (currently only South Bombay).
With over one lakh local taxis running on the roads of Mumbai, it still becomes difficult for them to get customers and equally difficult for the customers to find a taxi in certain areas. But now, with more than 2,000 Kaali-Peelis registered in Ola in the South Bombay area, customers can book cabs without having to head out looking for one. More info
