Bolt rolls out Women Only feature in Kenya

Bolt rolls out Women Only feature on their platform in Kenya

Ride-hailing platform Bolt has launched a women-only service that enables women passengers to request rides from women drivers only.

The move follows the rising cases of harassment and gender-based violence on public transportation.

The rides on the Women Only feature will cost the same as the main Bolt category, with no surcharge for the service.

Women drivers will not be penalised if they cancel a trip when expecting to collect a female passenger, and a male passenger is waiting for them at the agreed collection point.
