Ride-hailing firm Ola could be setting up office in Reading, just outside London, as they look to continue growth across the UK. According to In Your Area, the Indian based app firm have submitted a planning application to Reading Borough Council for office space on Greyfriars Road.

Ola offer a similar service to ride-sharing giants Uber. The only difference is that Ola give passengers the option between a private hire vehicle and a traditional metered taxi. Ola already operate in Wales and recently announced that they will also be available in Bristol, Bath and Exeter. A freedom of information request also recently revealed that they were granted an operators licence by Wolverhampton city council. Ola have yet to apply for a licence to operate in London, but if they were to acquire office space right on the doorstep of the capital, it could well be a matter of “when” rather than “if.”
