Virat Kohli & Ola team up against Delhi air pollution

MUMBAI: With Delhi-NCR battling smog and heavy air pollution levels over the past week, Ola has kicked off the fourth leg of its year-long campaign, #FarakPadtaHai. The campaign was launched on 5 June, World Environment Day, to raise awareness about congestion and pollution issues and encourage the adoption of shared mobility.

Taking Ola’s innings ahead, Indian cricket team captain, Virat Kohli has joined the fight. Bringing attention towards deteriorating air quality in Delhi-NCR, Kohli urged his fans and followers to adopt shared mobility solutions like metro trains, buses, and Ola Share, through his social media platforms.

Fighting the issue of vehicular pollution and congestion through its #FarakPadtaHai campaign, Ola pledged its support to Kohli by promising free rides for all first time Ola Share users, once every week of the year; appealing citizens to retweet Virat’s tweet, bringing more attention to the benefits of ridesharing.
Ola COO Vishal Kaul said, “The pollution in Delhi is concerning. It is important that each one of us, in our own meaningful way, fight this battle as our own. We are thrilled to have a youth icon like Virat Kohli join the #FarakPadtaHai campaign in India’s fight against air pollution, especially in the capital city. We urge all citizens to spread the message of switching to shared mobility, by travelling by bus, metro or take an Ola Share. It is indeed a small step but will lead to a big change! Ola is committed to helping every citizen take that first step by unlocking free rides for all new Share users once every week for the rest of the year.”

By creating flat fares zones across Delhi-NCR on Ola Share, Ola is encouraging the adoption of shared rides and greener mobility as small steps towards making a big difference. Share pass has tremendously helped in reducing the barriers to trial for Ola Share which can be availed at Rs 35 across Delhi NCR. Additionally, a 10-ride pass is available at just Rs 10, enabling pocket-friendly commute around NCR with shared rides at flat fares.

In addition to encouraging adoption of shared commute, Ola is also distributing spider plant saplings at various metro stations to commuters. Spider plant offers many health benefits and is commonly used to remove harmful chemicals from the air, proving helpful in the current high pollution conditions.
