I had a conversation today with a Mumbai taxi driver who uses both Ola and Uber Softwares to get his clients. Here’s a few points he made:

  1. Uber has less business in Mumbai.

  2. All payments of Uber are made online and in the bank accounts of drivers at the end of the month. The problem with that is that one needs a steady amount of cash to pay for diesel. Ola in the other hand has customers, 80% of who pay by cash.

Right after this conversation, I received an emailer from Uber announcing Cash payments !
