Zomato shares a ride with Ola

"This partnership with Zomato brings increased convenience, seamless mobility and dining or ordering experience to the customers of both the platforms," Ola Director Alliances Saurabh Mishra said. He added that with this partnership, users of app can not only book Ola rides but also pay for orders through Ola Money at various Zomato partner restaurants. Zomato partner restaurants will also set up special zones, where customers can book an Ola, he said.
