Ola is Uber’s new nightmare on London’s streets

Ola’s first week in London should set off alarm bells for rival Uber. On Feb. 12, only two days after its debut in UK’s capital, downloads of Ola’s app in the country hit an all-time high of 44,337, a recent report by Boston-based app intelligence firm Apptopia shows. In comparison, Uber averaged 13,471 daily downloads in February.
