This seems to be the season of ridesharing in Nigeria. After Jekalo launched a few weeks ago, there’s a new kid on the block.
GoMyWay is a ride-sharing marketplace connecting passengers with ride owners going along the same route and have empty seats to spare. Our aim is to provide a solution to the transportation problem in various parts in Africa via a people-powered transportation network. In addition, we are helping protect the environment by reducing carbon emissions as well as reducing traffic congestion in big cities. We recently launched in Nigeria and will be launching in a few other African countries too.
Compared to public transport, GoMyWay offers the cheapest, fun and most convenient way to travel across the country or within a city. Based on a formula that takes into account travel costs (e.g fuel costs), the platform suggests a fee that car owners can charge their co-travelers. Passengers pay the stated amount to the car owner.
Asides helping both passengers and car owners save more, verified members get to make new friends, meet potential business partners and conveniently arrive at their destination.
We have in place four(4) verification levels for all members: Facebook, Phone number, Email and Valid ID. There is also member ratings/reviews as well as a dedicated support team to monitor activities on the platform. Co-travelers are free to contact car owners of their choice, and in turn, car owners can accept or decline requests.
To kick off, car owners can win One whole month’s fuel cost by offering their city to city rides on the platform. What To Do: Go to gomyway.com , click the “offer a ride” button , Enter ride details and publish. Three(3) winners will be announced weekly via our social media platforms.
GoMyWay is funded by Angel investors with years of experience: Sim Shagaya (CEO/Founder, Konga), Co-creation Hub and Bill Paladino (Ex-amazon and Naspers executive).
