New Delhi, May 23 (IANS) Expressing its willingness to work with the government in providing world class transport solution, private cab operator Ola on Monday welcomed the efforts of the Delhi government to launching the app-based Premium Bus Services.

“Ola welcomes the efforts of the Delhi government for app-based Premium Bus Services. We are confident that this will go a long way in solving for key issues like congestion, pollution and parking that we are faced with today,” said a statement from the app-based cab service provider.

It said it looked forward to working with the government in extending a world class daily commute solution from Ola Shuttle to citizens across the state.

The Delhi government on May 20, notified the scheme of launching the app-based premium bus services, in a bid to encourage private car owners to switch to public transport and complement the odd-even traffic scheme.
