Nyota Ride App Brings Travel Convenience To Taxi Users In Eldoret

Nyota Ride is a new revolutionary way of giving freedom to riders and taxi drivers or vehicle owners.

Taxi cabs are on every street corner in Eldoret CBD, and while it’s not difficult to get one at your convenience, it is the experience of your ride that may not be the most ideal.

Firstly, whichever car your taxi guy picks you up with, is the one you’ll use to travel to your destination. Most times you are not able to choose which car to use.

Secondly, you always have to haggle over a price; there’s only so much you can bargain. Lastly, you are not always guaranteed of taxi services at a moments notice. Your regular cab guy could be attending to another client or is off duty, forcing you to hustle for another ride.

Nyota Ride mobile application will give you the freedom to choose your driver based on an array of features including car type, price and ratings, as well as additional offers from drivers – e.g. some drivers, provide water to their customers or the chance to play your music playlist. Nyota Ride is the first application in the Kenyan market to give this freedom to riders!

Nyota Ride to Enable Taxi Drivers Get Clients Fast

Taxi drivers in Eldoret no longer have to park their cars and wait for customers. With the application installed, drivers will get notification alerts from clients needing services within the area. Drivers can then accept the request and drive to the pickup point.

When it comes to pricing, Nyota Ride gives the drivers the freedom to choose their pricing; unlike any other application in the market. The power of supply and demand determines fare charges with an overall guidance and monitoring from Nyota Ride. Each driver determines how much they are charging their customers. The freedom comes with a careful balance between breaking even vs. pricing oneself off the market!

More Options for Riders

Nyota Ride gives customers access to taxi driver’s information including their full name, picture, type of car, reg number, driver reviews and fare charges. Once you send out a request for a cab, a list of available drivers within the location will pop up on the screen. After reviewing their information, you’ll get to select the taxi you wish to ride in.
