Flit Ride aims to disrupt the ride-hailing industry by introducing a peer-topeer African marketplace connecting riders to existing taxi drivers. Using the Flit Ride mobile app and pressing a button on their smartphone, riders can request for rides and drivers can bid fare price on an open market.
Once a rider is matched to the driver, the platform will process the rider’s payment done through either mobile money, Flit tokens or credit card.
Flit Ride drivers would earn a fair wage as they will be able to keep 95% of their earning. Flit Ride will also partner with existing taxi drivers instead of competing against them.
