Rail commuters will now be able to book their taxi through Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) app. As per a PTI report, cab aggregator Ola and IRCTC have announced a partnership in this regard.
The tie-up, a six month pilot project, will give customers access to Ola booking services when they visit the IRCTC Rail Connect App and on its website, an IRCTC statement said.
The commuters will have the option to choose their preferred car from offered choices such as Ola Micro, Ola Mini, Ola Auto, Ola Share etc. However, if sources are to be believed, passengers won't be entitled to any discount.
Customers can choose to book cabs up to seven days in advance or upon reaching the railway station. In addition, the IRCTC outlets at railway stations or Ola's self-serving kiosk will also enable commuters to book cabs.
The partnership will provide first-and-last-mile connectivity to commuters, an IRCTC spokesperson said.
"The ease of travel of our commuters is of prime importance to us and we believe that this association will help in delivering unparalleled convenience to the users on our platform, fostering and strengthening the culture of Digital India," the spokesperson said.
