SafeBoda has announced the launch of its car-hailing service — SafeCar bringing its expertise to revolutionise the car and taxi industry in Ibadan, Nigeria.

SafeBoda believes that the future of urban transportation is about community, supporting drivers to make more money, enhancing their welfare, and giving customers a convenient, world-class cashless experience. SafeBoda does things differently – without hassle or negotiation with a friendly, happy driver.

Rapa Ricky Thomson, the SafeBoda co-founder and director during the launch, said: “We’re very excited to launch SafeCar in our Super App with a safer, more convenient solution than what is offered in the market. We’ve talked to drivers and passengers, tested our product, and we are going to change transportation in Uganda forever; we are going completely cashless.”

According to SafeBoda, all SafeCar trips are cashless. Customers will use their SafeBoda Wallet to conveniently pay for their trips to avoid the hassle of looking for a change and negotiating with drivers on how much they should pay.

“Our drivers will be happy and make more money with SafeBoda. We are in the business of making communities thrive, and our car drivers will now join us,” Thomson noted.

Olaoluwa Arokoyu, SafeBoda Nigeria Country Manager, said: “We’re very excited to launch cars in Ibadan. We believe we will offer a safer, more convenient solution than the market currently offers in Nigeria. We have learned so much from our customers and drivers in Dadan, building an okada community, and have innovated to provide a great experience on car transportation.

According to SafeBoda, all car trips are cashless. Customers can use the SafeBoda Wallet to conveniently pay for a trip and don’t have to negotiate with drivers as they pay via their SafeBoda Wallet.

Users can deposit in their wallets via Bank Cards or give cash directly to the driver to top up. Cars will be available across Ibadan to enable everyone in the city to move at their convenience.

Fola Olatunde, Head of Operations, added:  “SafeBoda has always cared for its driver community, and our car drivers will be part of this community. We have focused on giving good earnings to our drivers, ensuring they make good earnings on every trip. In addition, we have worked for hand in hand to build a community that has benefits like respect in the streets and other services.”

Moses Musinguzi, SafeBoda’s very first driver and currently a Senior Operations Manager, said: “The launch of SafeCar is another opportunity for the community to grow and thrive.” “The onboarding process is smooth and friendly, in addition to the numerous benefits of being a SafeCar driver.”
