Bolt, the second leading ride-sharing platform in Ghana, has expanded its operations in Ghana with the launch of their service in Kumasi.
Bolt (then Taxify) first officially launched in 2017. Two years later, the ride-sharing service is now in Kumasi.
Uche Okafor, Bolt’s Regional Manager for West Africa had this to say: “At Bolt, our primary mission is to make urban transportation easier, quicker and more reliable. So far, we have been able to bring Bolt’s affordable and reliable service to people in Accra. Now, we’re embarking on an expansion course across Ghana and Kumasi given its vibrant population and infrastructure is ripe for Bolt’s entry.”
With their launch in Kumasi, it increases the competition of ride-sharing in Ghana with Uber already operating in Kumasi.
Bolt drivers receive 85% of fares when compared to Uber who charge a 25% commission fee.
