Bolt increases transport charges 

DAR ES SALAAM: BOLT in Africa has increased its transport fare prices by 5 per cent in Dar es Salaam and over 10 per cent in other cities to cushion the impact of macroeconomic factors on the transport industry.

“In response to the increased macroeconomic challenges, we have recalibrated our pricing,” said Bolt Operations Manager Munira Ruhwanya in a statement.

“This modification underscores our dedication to ensuring optimal earnings for drivers using our platform, solidifying our position as the preferred and cost-effective choice for our valued customers,” he added.

In Dar es Salaam, the categories that have been affected by the revised prices are Bodaboda, Bajaji, Car and Bolt Corporate. Bolt has also increased per-kilometre pricing.

Price changes will also be implemented in other cities including Dodoma, Mwanza and Arusha.

He said Bolt recently launched its Driver Engagement Centre located in Dar es Salaam in continued efforts to enhance drivers’ relations and address their concerns.

He said Bolt recognises the pivotal role of drivers on its platform and remains committed to improving their earnings, stimulating demand and enhancing their overall service experience.
