Today, SafeBoda has launched an exciting new feature that allows you to pair instantly with a SafeBoda rider on the street! Designed to be used in busy areas with a high volume of bodas available, the feature allows passengers to spot a SafeBoda rider, enter their helmet number into the app and match with them instantly. This means that passengers are still able to use the app, taking advantage of SafeBoda’s prices and the 20% discount applied to credit payments.
Co-CEO, Maxime Dieudonne says, “SafeBoda’s mission is to constantly innovate to make transportation in urban areas safer and more convenient. We are really excited about this new feature which will reduce waiting time to zero”.
This new feature is simple and easy to use in four steps: 1. Spot a SafeBoda rider close by 2. Tap PAIR in the app 3. Enter the rider’s helmet number 4. Match instantly with no waiting!
