Why Bolt Extend Ride-hailing Operations to Abeokuta, Enugu

A ride-hailing platform, Bolt (formally known as Taxify), has extended its operations into two more Nigerian cities, Abeokuta and Enugu, in a bid to bring convenient and reliable transportation services closer to its customers during this festive season.



Bolt’s Regional Manager for West Africa, Uche Okafor, who stated this, added that demand for ride-hailing services had been growing across Nigeria as public transport was still unreliable and the costs of car ownership had soared.

A statement by the firm said with the expansion into Abeokuta and Enugu, Bolt’s network within Nigeria had increased to 11.

Bolt started operating in Nigeria in 2016 in Lagos. And with the launch of Enugu and Abeokuta this month, it will operate in eleven Nigerian cities – Lagos, Abuja, Ibadan, Owerri, Benin, Uyo, Calabar, Port Harcourt, Kano, Enugu and Abeokuta.

“Demand for ride-hailing services is growing across Nigeria as public transport is still unreliable and the costs of car ownership soar. Ride-hailing services like Bolt make it possible for more people to enjoy the convenience and safety of getting from one place to another, without the costs of car ownership or the inconvenience of public transport,” said Uche Okafor, Bolt’s regional manager for West Africa.

“The ride-hailing sector has stimulated unprecedented innovation, growth and job creation in a new industry that is just four years old in Nigeria. Bolt is committed to the Nigerian market, and we intend to grow our footprint to more towns and cities across the country, making it possible for more people to benefit from ride-hailing services, whether they are riders seeking cost-effective convenience, or drivers seeking business opportunities,” Okafor said.
