A new rideshare service is set to launch in the region.
Ola will be available to passengers in Tamworth and will cover from Hanging Rock to Kentucky to Kaputar.
Simon Smith, managing director of Ola Australia and New Zealand, says offering services in Tamworth and the surrounding region will bring more competition and choice to both rideshare users and drivers in the area.
“Since launching in this country two years ago, millions of Australians have benefitted from riding with Ola and it’s time we gave the same choice to people in Tamworth," he said.
“We also want to offer drivers in the area the opportunity to make more money on their own schedule – whether it’s driving on the weekend, during morning and evening commutes, or just in their spare time,” Smith said.
Ola will give Tamworth rideshare drivers who complete their registration before launch 100 per cent of the fare on every ride they take with the platform across a four week period.
New users will receive 30 per cent off all rides for their first two weeks from sign-up, up to a maximum discount of $10 per ride.
