Taxify Uganda has this morning unveiled new lowered prices for the month of March to their riders and drivers. This comes at a time when the rainy season in the country has made moving around Kampala almost impossible.
Last year, Taxify introduced demand-based charges also known as Dynamic pricing in a bid to attract more drivers to its platform and solidify its presence in Kampala. Dynamic pricing on Taxify is a feature that makes it possible for us to provide more rides even more effectively. Since then, the online taxi-hailing platform has often slashed their prices for riders and has continued giving drivers and improved percentage.
Taxify has taken measures to ensure that certain guidelines are followed to protect both the boda boda riders and the passengers by carrying out due diligence pre-trip, first aid training for riders and providing rider gear (helmets, first aid kit and reflector jackets).
While lowering the prices, Taxify will be compensating drivers with bonuses, to compensate the difference. The focus is to provide drivers with better revenue per ride and keeping them happy with earnings and support we provide, which leads to ultimately better service for clients. Both sides win with Taxify.
In Uganda, Taxify operates in Kampala. In August 2017, Taxify announced a strategic partnership with Didi Chuxing, the world’s leading mobile transportation platform. The Taxify app is available on iOS and Android.
Happy drivers means a great experience for riders. Taxify believes in treating its drivers with respect, allowing them to earn more than what they receive on other platforms. Pricing is guided by a belief in sustainable driver earnings.
