This category is tailor-made for larger groups; with a sitting capacity of 6 passengers with fares set at

  • Base fare: 100
  • Per kilometer: 40

Taxify is doing this to take on Uber which recently launched Uber Chap Chap service in Nairobi, which comprise of a fleet of fuel-efficient budget Suzuki Alto which are Ksh 50 cheaper than the ordinary UberX which cost Ksh 150 minimum fares.

Uber Chap Chap will be launched in Uganda and Tanzania after the Nairobi launch though the drivers claim the service is at their cost and most of them are not making any money safe just for loan repayments to CMC Motors, which worked with Stanbic Bank to import the cars.
