Taxi company Ola has taken their service to a whole new level. The water level to be specific.

They have deployed Ola boats with professional rowers to rescue people from waterlogged areas in Chennai. The Chennai floods are country’s recent trouble for which the Army has been sent. Cars and other vehicles were getting submerged in the water. that is when Ola decided to step up their game and boy did they do it! Here you can see a truck unloading a boat with Ola’s sticker on it. I bet you have seen this on many cars but a Boat!

And they are certainly Happy to help.

 

The boats are equipped with umbrellas and fit five to nine passengers. Now, they are being used to ferry food and portable water to many areas FREE OF COST!

Ravi Teja, the Ola business head in Tamil Nadu says that they are working closely with stakeholders to reach all the water-logged areas. The service will be for the next three days and will surely be extended if the need arises.

We think that this idea is sheer Genius!  Whoever came up with this idea deserves an applause and a hike, if I may. With so many lives lost in this flood, Ola has just made rescue and evacuation very easy for Chennai. Well done Ola!
