Tech start-up SafeBoda has today officially announced the launch of a new feature that allows customers to load ride credit to their accounts with either MTN Mobile Money or Airtel Money.
This new feature, which can be done in three simple steps, allows SafeBoda’s customers to just walk away at the end of their trip, thus removing the hassle of trying to find change. Combined with SafeBoda’s fair pricing, which removes the stress of having to bargain, this is the most convenient way to travel around Kampala.
In order to use this new feature, existing customers will need to go to the Play Store to
update their app to the latest version. Following that they simply go to ‘Payment Options’ in the App Menu and follow the simple instructions to load their account.
SafeBoda co-founder Maxime Dieudonné says, ‘this is the most exciting update
we’ve made on the app to date. Our aim is to improve the boda experience for both
customers and riders in terms of safety and convenience. Making trips cashless and
removing the hassle of carrying change is a big step in that direction.’
