Bolt Launches First Ride-Hailing Inter-City Trip In Nigeria, Offers 20% Discount On All Trips
One of Nigeria’s leading mobility platforms, Bolt, has launched the first ride-hailing inter-city trip category in the country.
In addition to the launch, Bolt is also offering a 20% discount on all intercity trips to promote its affordability, and it is valid for up to a maximum of NGN 5,000 per ride.
This development comes on the backdrop of Bolt’s desire to build sustainable cities by easing mobility for Nigerians and to also connect cities and transport people conveniently, an extension of its intracity offering.
The inter-city category on Bolt offers fast and convenient rides and is currently available for the Lagos-Ibadan and Owerri-Port Harcourt routes.
It is accessible through the mobile platform, allowing users to book trips to and from the cities conveniently.
Riders can request an inter-city trip by simply setting their destination on the platform, confirming their pick-up location, and then clicking on request, which will connect them to a nearby driver, just like the intra-city service. The difference is that the inter-city service is only available from 6 a.m. until 3 p.m. daily. The inter-city service also provides replacement vehicles on standby to ensure no hindrance affects the journey.
As the festive period is approaching, Nigerians can utilise the inter-city service to visit family and friends within these cities where the service is available. This provides riders with safe, fast, and comfortable rides at the touch of a button. Bolt’s inter-city category advances its commitment to excellent service delivery by simplifying city-to-city transportation.
