Yet again another major player is set to join ever-growing transport business operating in Ghana.
Online transport technology company, Taxify, is set to begin operations in Accra on December 22nd, 2017.
The Taxify app will allow customers use their smartphones to request trips from the nearest Taxify driver, who will use GPS to locate the customer, then take the customer to his/her destination.
Taxify is coming into the Ghanaian market with promises of competitive rates and reliable service. A model that will see drivers earn more, with only 15% commissions as against the current 25% charged by its competitions. Riders are also assured of spending less, better pricing, no surges and cancellation fees.

“Taxify believes that happy drivers means better quality service for riders and that in treating its drivers with respect, allowing them to earn more than with other platforms and providing a range of safeguards and features that help them work in the way that suits them best, they will be in turn provide superior ride experiences to riders.
“It also believes in providing exemplary customer service to riders, with a local customer support team and the option to pay via cash or card,” Taxify stated.
Taxify already operates in 19 countries worldwide, including neighbouring countries like Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa and has seen huge success with its fairer, more transparent ride-hailing service.
