Lagos Ride is a smart mobility solution that allows users to book and share the cost of a ride from their preferred pickup to drop off locations respectively. It will link users up based on their preferred pick and drop off points, each not more than 1km apart respectively, and a pick-up time not more than 5 minutes apart.
We believe this service will contribute to a reduction in traffic congestion in Lagos as it will encourage ride sharing and therefore reduce the frequency of single-occupancy driving.
This scheme was set up as part of ongoing efforts of the Lagos state government to optimize the transit experience of Lagosians.
The state through its investment company, Ibile Holdings intervened in the acquisition of 1,000 brand new cars to be used on the LagosRide platform. The cars would be made available to interested partners/drivers after a down payment of 20% has been made and balance payment will be deducted from daily fares/earnings over a maximum period of 4 years.
Why is LagRide a Better Option
The Lagos Ride platform was built with the objective of protecting the interests of all the stakeholders required to provide great service.
