Bolt has introduced electric tuk tuks, and e-bicycles on its platform as the company expands its greener transport options in Kenya in the food category.
The Electric, bicycles and tuk tuks will currently be used by Bolt Food couriers only as the company plans to include them into the ride-hailing business as well.
The firm said on Monday that the initiative is geared towards reducing its environmental footprints, at the same time fulfilling the demand for light, smart and green modes of transport.
“This is a great step towards realizing environmentally conscious ways for people to move around in the city, reduce our ecological footprint, decrease air pollution and increase access to clean transportation modes,” said Hillary Miller-Wise, Regional Director, Bolt Africa.
Bolt tapped into Food delivery business in March 2021 during the rise of the third wave of the Covid–19 pandemic and has since witnessed a great reception and tremendous growth within Nairobi.
The new e-bikes and e-tuk tuks will also expand options for Bolt delivery business thereby creating more economic opportunities for couriers and providing Bolt’s customers with more options to choose from.
The company offers the widest array of ride-hailing options at the most affordable prices in the market and continues to have steady growth in operations driven by the demand for its quality services.
