To sign up to Mondo Ride, users download the app, then a private SMS code is send to them. Each first ride is Ksh 500 off. Mondo has both cabs and Motorcycles, something Uber has started doing in India-its emerging markets experiment lab. Kenya’s MaraMoja Transport also has both cabs and Motorcycles.
TechMoran is yet to establish how cheap or expensive and how effective “Mondo Ride” is. But the app’s design is no different from the rest, however, Uber stands out with its pricing system. Easy Taxi, which launched here first is said to have the most number of drivers but some of the passengers say it hasn’t covered all parts of Nairobi. It’s technology is also good.
Mondo Ride says that when a user blocks a driver, the app instantly connects them with another driver nearby. This might be helpful than just reporting and poorly rating a creepy driver who might always be in your location. It also allows users to pay in cash after arriving at your destination.
