The Drivers and Partners Association of Kenya (DPAK) has jumped into the competitive and ever-growing ride-hailing industry with Bebabeba, a locally developed taxi-hailing app targeting corporate, leisure and low budget travellers all parts of the country.
Bebabeba currently has 2300 drivers, each of whom are charged a 15% commission, with a KES150 set base fare and a charge of KES25 per kilometre charged to riders.
The app is available on Android Playstore and will soon be launched on Apple app store.
DPAK chairman Simon Njuguna said the app offers normal taxi services for singular clients, families, executives and premier services that include pre-booking of luxurious rides and mini-buses for large-group travels. “The services are customised for every client and some refreshments like water and local dailies will be available for our clients,” he added, speaking during its launch in Nairobi.
Riders and firms will be able to create ride accounts for their families and employees using the app.
