Information available on Ola UK's Twitter profile suggests that brand's services are already operational in Cardiff, Liverpool, Newport Vale of Glamorgan, Bristol, South Gloucestershire, and North Somerset. The brand is looking forward to expanding services to the rest of the United Kingdom.

Trade newspaper Financial Express quoted Ben Legg , managing director of Ola UK saying, “We are celebrating bringing more travel and employment choices to Liverpudlians with our ride-hailing app with the help of the community choir.”

As per the report, Ola launched a fleet of Bajaj and Piaggio autorickshaws in Liverpool and aims to overtake Uber as the region's top taxi-app.

Founded in 2011 by Bhavish Aggarwal and Ankit Bhati Ola made an entry into the United Kingdom by launching its services across South Wales in August last year. Talking of auto rickshaws, an innately Indian thing, the brand's act overseas will surely create a lot of healthy buzz here in India.
