Ola, a competitor in the ride-share industry against Uber, is putting the brakes on its operations in Australia.

One of Uber’s prominent rivals, Ola, is ceasing its operations in Australia, informing customers of its decision to “discontinue operations” in the country.

According to an email sent to customers, the Indian company, one of the three main ride-sharing firms in Australia, will shut down its app on Friday, marking the end of over six years of operation.

The Transport Workers Union expressed concern over the sudden closure and announced plans to request an urgent meeting with the company. This move follows similar announcements in the grocery and food delivery sectors.

Ola, which served cities such as Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Adelaide, Canberra, and Perth, had a workforce of over 50 employees across Australia and New Zealand and boasted a user base of more than 1.5 million.
