Bolt finally in Sunyani
One of the leading ride-order services in Ghana, Bolt has recently made their services to the inhabitants of Kumasi. This is in-line with the vision of expanding to the various cities across the country.
With a presence already in the major cities of Ghana, Accra, Cape Coast, Kumasi and Takoradi, they recently expanded to Koforidua in the Eastern Region. This shows a steady rise in their plans and visions to provide a safe, affordable and reliable means of transportatiom.
David Kotei Nikoi, Country Manager, Bolt Ghana said: “At Bolt, our primary mission is to make urban transportation for all Ghanaians easier, quicker and more reliable. So far, we have done so in Accra, Kumasi, Cape Coast, Takoradi, Koforidua and now Sunyani, with plans to expand even further.”
“Our expansion within the major cities in Ghana, albeit strategic, is a testament to our bid to stay and increase our footprint within the country. Not only that but to also be the foremost partner for mobility in Ghana,” he added.
The services Bolt provides are quite easy to use by the everyday Ghanaian. All one needs to do is to download the Bolt app, from either Android or IOS App stores and configure their profiles. Once the profile is set, the user can set their preferred location or choose location at the point in time, input the destination, and all is set to ride. The app usually gives an estimated cost for the trip and once a user inputs the destination, nearby drivers are alerted for picking of the passenger.
For passenger safety and security, once a driver has accepted the ride, passengers will be able to see their driver’s name, photo, car make and model and registration number, as well as be able to track the driver’s movement in real-time.
Bolt recently added another security feature where passengers can share their trip details using the “share your ETA” button on the app.
Drivers on Bolt platform receive competitive earnings paid by passengers – a significantly higher percentage than what drivers using other similar platforms receive. All drivers can choose how many hours they drive, there are no monthly dues, and they can work in whichever areas they want to.
Drivers’ cars must be a 2003 vehicle model or newer. The car must be four-door (Toyota Corolla, Hyundai Accent, Kia Rio, etc) and must have passed a safety inspection. This means that everyone hailing a ride through Bolt can be confident that they will get to their destination safely and comfortably.
