Bolt BODA will provide passengers with an alternative means of transport, adding to the growing array of ride-hailing service offered in the market.

The service is also set to bring Bolt’s convenient, reliable and affordable transportation services closer to its customers as it cements its footprints across the country.

“We continue to scale up our operations for the benefit of our customers and to invest resources in quality services that meet the demands and needs of our community.

Motorcycles are one of the fastest ways to get around in Dodoma, and we are excited to offer everyone more choices to move smartly and affordably within the city," said Remmy Eseka, Country Manager at Bolt, Tanzania. 

The launch brings Bolt’s Boda Boda growing network to three urban centres in Tanzania, including Dar-es-Salam, Mwanza, and Dodoma.

Bolt offers the widest array of ride-hailing options at the most affordable prices in the market and continues to have steady growth in operations driven by the demand for its quality and affordable services.

Bolt BODA is simply an addition to Bolt’s range of products, including Bolt Base and Bolt Lite, to cater to Dodoma’s unique customer travel needs.

Customers will access Bolt BODA rides through the Bolt app with minimum charges of  TZS 1,000, TZS 220 per kilometre, Tzs 50 per minute and a base fare of Tzs 600. Bolt drivers will keep 80% of their earnings as Bolt will only charge a commission of 20 % per trip, which applies to both cash and card payment options.

Bolt will only onboard boda-boda riders who have national identity cards (IDs), valid driving licenses, police clearance certificates, LATRA vehicle license, Motor vehicle registration cards (commercial usage) and vehicle insurance (commercial).

“Our core business is to provide reliable, safe and affordable transportation services to everyone, and we are excited to make travel easier and quicker across the country during this festive season.” Said Remmy
