One of the inventions that changed people’s life in the 21st Century is online car booking sites like Ola, Uber and Rapido. These are apps used to travel from place to place with a convenient price.
Ola was founded in Dec 2010 by Bhavish Aggarwal and Ankit Bhati with a mission to build mobility for a billion people. In 2009, Uber was founded as Ubercab by Garrett Camp who is a computer programmer and the co-founder of StumbleUpon, and Travis Kalanick.
Uber was invented in 2009 whereas Ola was invented in the year 2010. Life has not been the same ever since.
