DURBAN - Afri Ride, a secure ride sharing mobile app with tailor-made solutions for the African travelling community, is now available in South Africa, and will be expanding into other African markets in the near future.
Joe Moyo, managing director at the ride sharing app, describes the app as incredibly simple to use.
"All that users have to do is, to upload their travel details such as the start and end location, travel date and the number of empty seats that are available, this then allows travelers heading in the same direction to book their seat," said Moyo.
He added, "The most wasted resources, from a vehicle capacity standpoint, are the empty seats in moving cars. The idea behind Afri Ride is to make use of existing resources by offering the unoccupied seats in your car, or offering your car for rental".
According to the Associations of Automobiles (AA), there are more people that need transport than there are rides. "So what better way than to provide a platform for the people who need the rides, basically a platform that safely connects travelers," said AA.
