Here is bad news for all the people who regularly use cabs for traveling. Both Ola and Uber are now planning on increasing the fares.
But worry no more, because very soon you’ll be the hapless someone barraged with high prices and no refuge. According to the reports, it is known that both Ola and Uber are now aiming at increasing the fare and cutting the conventional incentive for their drivers.

It also seems that the companies aim at improving ‘unit economics’, or the amount of money they make or lose for every passenger, as the growth rate in large cities plateaus and the two companies dig in for the long haul.
According to investors and analysts tracking the ride-hailing app business, Ola and Uber each burns $30-40 million every month.
