Industry Statistics

In India, 57.0% of ride-hailing users prefer ride-hailing over their own vehicle; this same figure is 29.0% in the United States and 32.0% in Germany. 


  • The ride-hailing business model revolves around creating a two-sided market that connects the end user with the service provider over a technology-enabled platform. Ride Hailing, on one hand, facilitates a customer to book a cab at his / her own convenience, and on the other hand, it provides a source of earnings to drivers of private 4-wheelers (4Ws).
  • Ride-Hailing services rely on smartphone apps to connect willing passengers with drivers who provide rides (for a fee) in their private vehicles.
  • Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) design and operate these online platforms. Most TNCs function as digital marketplaces linking self-employed drivers with customers, while collecting a fee for making the connection.

  • During April and May 2020, OLA’s revenue declined by almost 95.0%.
