Delhi clocked 924 million km (63.4 million trips) between 6 AM and 10 PM and 141 million km of night-time travel between 10 PM and 6 AM, as per the data.
The total distance covered by Ola vehicles in 2019 was 6 billion km. Of this, 166 million km was through Ola bikes, and 1.2 billion km by Ola autos.
The top seven cities of Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune and Bengaluru accounted for 4.45 billion km.
"We served over six billion km this year through Ola's various mobility offerings... shared mobility has expanded beyond tier-I cities, making deeper inroads into the hinterlands of the country," an Ola spokesperson said.
While four-wheelers remained a preferred mode for longer routes, Ola auto and Ola bike are steadily becoming synonymous with first and last-mile connectivity in over 250 cities and towns across India, the spokesperson said.
