Taxify has hit one year since its launch in Kenya, East Africa recording tremendous growth in the last 12 months.
The firm says it expanded to 4 cities within East Africa in the last quarter of 2017 with more than 5 million trips taken across East Africa. The firm says its most expensive trip in Nairobi cost KES 6,000, and was 176 km long and took over 3 and 1/2 hours while the most popular car model on the Taxify platform in 2017 in Kenya was Toyota Fielder.
“As part of our 1st anniversary gift to Kenyans, we will be rewarding our loyal riders in Nairobi with 2 iPhones and the Mombasa riders with 1 iPhone every week. This is our way of saying “Thank you” for all the support we have received from Kenyans in our first year. This is our first anniversary in the country and we would like to celebrate with everyone,” said Alex Mwaura, City Manager, Taxify Kenya.
To celebrate this great country and to appreciate the support the firm has received from Nairobi and Mombasa residents, it will be giving away 12 iPhone X smartphones to riders in Nairobi and Mombasa.
The most popular destination in 2017 in Nairobi was JKIA. Competitor Uber surpassed this 5m milestone several months ago.
