NEW DELHI: With an aim to providing first-and-last-mile connectivity, railway PSU IRCTC today announced a partnership with cab aggregator Ola, giving commuters an option book taxi on its app.

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, the IRCTC said in a statement.

The Ola cab facility will provide all the services offered such as Ola Micro, Ola Mini, Ola Auto, Ola Share etc. on the same price available directly on the IRCTC Rail Connect App and website.
