Nigerian ride-sharing service GoMyWay has launched in South Africa.
It works very much works like any other service of its kind such as FindALift; whether you’re a offering lifts or looking for a ride, you have to sign up on the GoMyWay website and list the details of your journey.
The app has a seat booking feature that lets passengers connect with drivers to discuss journey details such a pick-up and drop-off points and the fare. After the ride, passengers and drivers can “rate” each other according to their travelling experience.
In terms of safety for both drivers and passengers, GoMyWay says that verifies all users via their Facebook profile, phone number, email and ID number and has a support team that monitors all activities on its service.
You may not find a ride at the moment since it’s still early days for the service, but keep checking back over time once rides start appearing more frequently.
“At GoMyWay, we believe travelling should be cheap, fun and safe (a hat-trick really) and we have built this platform to ensure it is. This is not another taxi service. It is simply regular people using their resources in a smarter way,” the company said.
GoMyWay is also available in Ghana and Kenya.[Source – TechMoran, image – GoMyWay Facebook]
