Ride-hailing in Africa has gained a lot of traction in the last few years with several startups offering different options for transport directly from your smartphones or computer. One of these startups is the Estonian transport service company formerly known as Taxify which was founded back in 2013. The company is now present in about 30 countries across Africa, Europe, West Asia, Australia, and North America. Last year, the company attained unicorn status after receiving a $175 million funding which took its valuation to $1 billion.
Bolt has grown over these few years and was the no 1 ride-hailing app in Nigeria and Kenya in 2017 and by 2018, it was the no 1 in Africa. Following its recent launch in London, Bolt is launching its transport service for businesses and other corporate bodies alike that allows staffs and employees to book a ride in the company’s name. This way, it will be easy for firms and other corporate bodies to ascertain transport expenses and in no time. However, your company first have to have an account set up with Bolt and as an employer, you will have control over the official trips your employees take.
The new business platform on Bolt can be accessed from both mobile and desktop and is available in Uganda, Ghana, South Africa, and Tanzania with plans to expand to more locations in the future. You can check out Bolt’s business platform for additional knowledge on the subject.
