Taxify, Europe and Africa’s fastest growing ride-sharing platform launch its boda boda feature on the Taxify app today in Kampala-Uganda with hundreds of boda boda riders signed up to the platform and ready to accept riders anywhere in the city.
“At Taxify, we are always sensitive to the needs of local markets. Our main goal is to provide the most convenient, affordable and reliable way to move from place to place within cities. Boda is a good product for the people of Kampala as it fits well into the culture and is a category that has great potential to provide a steady source of income to many people in Uganda,” Shivachi Muleji, East Africa’s Regional Supply Manager, said.
Taxify has taken measures to ensure that certain guidelines are followed to protect the boda boda riders and passengers by carrying out due diligence pre-trip, first aid training for riders and providing rider gear (helmet, first aid kits, and reflector jackets). “ we most certainly believe that these training will equip boda boda to day work and will emphasize the importance of driving safely” added Shivachi.
In Uganda, Taxify operates in Kampala. In August 2017, Taxify announced a strategic partnership with Android.
