Afri Ride launches in South Africa

Ride-sharing mobile app, Afri Ride is now available in South Africa, Managing Director Mr. Joe Moyo, describes the app as simple to use, “All that customers need to do is to upload their travel details, such as the start and end location, date of travel and the number of empty seats that are obtainable, this then permits travelers heading in the same direction to reserve their seat.”

Moyo mentioned that, “The most misused resources, from a vehicle capacity standpoint, are the vacant seats in moving cars. The idea behind Afri Ride is to make better use of existing resources by offering the vacant seats in your car, or offering your car for hire,” stated

According to the Associations of Automobiles (AA), there are more populaces that need transport than there are rides. Economic and other factors have made being a car owner more of a challenge than ever before – with the average number of car repossessions ranging from 600-1500 cars per month. It is easy to assume that car owners are battling to sufficiently meet all their financial obligations.

In order to circumvent vehicle repossessions, the app provides the solution to subsidise the expenses associated with car ownership. “A car parked in a garage is not only depreciating in value but also running up the owner’s bill by way of insurance”, says Moyo who suggests listing your vehicle on Afri Ride and allowing users to borrow the car at a cost.

Moyo also made a remark that, “Consumers are discontented and credits this disappointment to the lack of ease during the booking process, “We have all experienced the headaches related with hiring a car, tonnes of paperwork needs to be filled as well as the need to have an active credit card.”

Afri Ride takes care of all the paperwork, all that users need to do, is to filter their search as per to their needs and affordability and Afri Ride connects them to a pool of suitable vehicles.
