Gurgaon: The Metro Rail authorities have joined hands with cab aggregator Ola, to set up special kiosks at 3 Rapid Metro stations in Gurgaon to improve the last mile connectivity.
With dedicated parking zones for Ola cabs for seamless pick up & drop, the proposed kiosks will come up at 3 stations-
- Vodafone Belvedere
- Sector 54
- Sector 55-56
- Saurabh Mishra, Director-Alliances, Ola, said,“Over the last one year, we have successfully set up Ola Kiosks and Zones at various public utilities like railway stations, airports and metro stations. Similar partnerships with South Western Railways and Chennai, Bangalore and Kolkata Metro have been very successful. Ola Zones at Kempegowda International Airport – Bengaluru and Swami Vivekananda Airport – Raipur are extremely popular among patrons. Ola has been able to facilitate last mile connectivity and an integrated mobility experience for hundreds of thousands of users at these utilities; and we hope to replicate the same experience for the commuters of Rapid Metro Gurgaon.”
- “Connecting key commercial areas of Gurugram, Rapid Metro Gurgaon serves thousands of daily commuters by acting as “last mile connector” to the Delhi Metro. There is complete synergy between the two brands on providing world class connectivity and convenience to the commuters. Now, with our combined efforts with Ola, the commuters will have another layer of seamless last mile connectivity to and from the metro stations. Ola’s robust network will further ease out the commuting experience of Gurugram’s Rapid Metro users.” said Rajiv Banga, MD & CEO, IL&FS Rail Limited.
