The service is only for medical travel that is non-Covid-19 related and doesn’t require an ambulance, like dialysis, chemotherapy, scheduled check-ups and physical injuries among others, it said.

Customers will be charged a nominal fare according to the rate card to compensate the drivers-partners for their services, it added.

“Trips to hospitals for medical urgencies are unavoidable, even in the current times. With Ola Emergency, we are able to facilitate trips to and from hospitals across the city through the Ola app," the statement said.

“With over 100 Hospitals in the city mapped, ''Ola Emergency'' will be available 24x7 and will provide citizens with a reliable, convenient and safe transport solution for medical trips that do not require an ambulance," it added.

The service has already been launched in Bengaluru, Vizag, Bhubaneshwar, Nashik and Varanasi, and will be launched in other major cities soon, the statement said.
