Jekalo.com Unveils Nigeria's First Ride Sharing Platform

Jekalo, an online platform that enable users to share a ride with someone going along the same route has been launched in Lagos, West Africa's business hub. The platform is the first of such in the country and we say kudos to the team who have worked on this innovative idea.

According to the Jekalo team, “If you own a ride, you can earn rewards by offering rides and for the days you do not want to drive, you can always join someone else’s ride. All members on Jekalo are verified and ride offers are screened before being published.”

The firm says its giving the first 30 rides for free to celebrate its launch in Lagos and will offer its users customized rates based on distance covered. Jekalo aims to be cheaper than a taxi and as affordable as a commercial bus but with greater comfort.

Jekalo is a Yoruba phrase for ‘let’s go,'.

It could be recalled that the Senior Marketing Manager at Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd, Mr. Jide Adeyemi while speaking on the theme "Changing Landscape" at the TEDxBodija held in Ibadan last year, commented that the world is changing and there would come a time when people would be able to share a ride with someone going along the same route. That era is now!
