Online transport technology company, Taxify, has commenced business in Accra, Ghana.
Taxify developed an app that will allow customers use their smartphones to schedule trips from the nearest Taxify driver.
The taxi driver will use GPS to locate the customer, then take the customer to an agreed destination.
With competitive rates and reliability, Taxify is set to be the go-to online transportation app upon its launch.
Theophilus Nana Ofori Brown, the City Manager, said that “Taxify’s focus is to provide drivers with better revenue per ride and at the same time keeping them happy with earnings and support they provide, which ultimately leads to a better service.
He added, “both public and private taxi drivers are open to join our network of over 700,000 riders and drivers.”
In Africa, Taxify currently operates in Cape Town and Johannesburg in South Africa and Nairobi in Kenya with plans of also launching in Nigeria soon.
