This announcement comes shortly after the company announced that it had launched an Insurance Protection cover that safeguards riders and drivers in all its operational cities across the country.

Bolt started operating in Nigeria in 2017 and is already the largest on-demand transportation network platform in the country.

According to Bolt’s Country Manager for Nigeria, Femi Akin-Laguda, “Demand for ride-hailing transportation is growing across Nigeria as people desire more flexible ways to move and the cost of car ownership continues to rise,”

He further said, “Ride-hailing services like Bolt make it possible for more people to enjoy the convenience, affordability and safety of getting from one place to another, while simultaneously providing a steady income for thousands of drivers and vehicle owners who utilise the platform to earn an income and support their families on a flexible schedule with no commitments.”

Bolt (formerly called Taxify) has been hugely successful in every city where it has launched and with this expansion move, continues to solidify its footprint across the country.

To celebrate Bolts launch in Jos, the company announced that it will be offering a launch discount to riders while offering drivers 0% commission for the first three months.

The company also tweeted about its launch in Jos and how you can get your first ride free when you use the code BOLTINJOS

One of Bolt’s key success factors in its growth, and rapid expansion has been the fact that drivers utilising its platform receive 80% to 85% of fares paid by riders – a significantly higher percentage than what drivers using other similar platforms receive.
