Managing director for Ola in Australia and New Zealand Simon Smith said making the app available in more areas increases competition and choice for consumers.
"Since launching in this country two years ago, millions of Australians have benefited from riding with Ola and it's time we gave the same choice to the people of Launceston," he said.
"We also want to offer drivers in the area the opportunity to make more money on their own schedule - whether it's driving on the weekend, during morning and evening commutes, or just in their spare time."
Ola has 75,000 drivers nationwide, those wishing to register as a driver can do so at ola.com.au/driver/. Ola also announced it has plans to expand to Hobart "soon".
