Lagos Cab Drivers Set To Ditch Uber, Bolt For Indigenous App Companies

Published by Nairaland on Thu, 10 Jun 2021

<blockquote>The Professional E-Hailing Drivers and Private Owners Association (PEDPA) in Lagos on Tuesday said it had entered into a partnership with two indigenous App companies for its ride-sharing service.<br><br>Idris Shonuga, national president of PEDPA, told journalists in Lagos on Tuesday that it had partnered with Active Ride and My Cab App companies as replacements for Uber and Bolt.<br><br>These indigenous App companies would work with the templates and provide drivers with a good welfare package for riders satisfaction.<br><br>This will enable the union to protect the collective interests of the drivers as decisions can now be jointly taken and approved before it is binding on both parties, PEDPA said.<br><br>The move came weeks after members of the drivers union embarked on industrial action to force Uber and Bolt to increase their fares.<br><br>Mr Shonuga said that both drivers and riders endured the shortcomings in the e-hailing industry without any mutual written agreement between the owners of the cars and the foreign app companies<br><br>As against the 20 per cent commission by the team giant App companies, Active Ride is charging 15 per cent commission on each trip.<br><br>And out of the 15 per cent, five per cent is dropped into the drivers cooperative wallet and can be accessed for a quick fix.<br><br>This means that with the 10 per cent commission taken by Active Ride, drivers can now earn more and even save.<br><br>They can now have a good maintenance routine which in turn translates to better customer service delivery, PEDPA said.<br><br>He said the new locally developed ride-sharing app would allow riders to be properly profiled as they would input their photographs at the point of registration which in turn will be displayed for riders to see.<br><br>This will improve the safety and security of both riders and drivers, he said.</blockquote><br><a rel=ugc href="https://www.premiumtimesng.com/regional/ssouth-west/466505-cab-drivers-set-to-ditch-uber-bolt-in-lagos.html">https://www.premiumtimesng.com/regional/ssouth-west/466505-cab-drivers-set-to-ditch-uber-bolt-in-lagos.html</a>
