About app

Convenience in urban transport is what we are all about. We make it easier for you to get your transport needs addressed in and around Kampala city. We think about the transport needs of i) everyday commuters who want to get from home to the city, ii) groups of people who would like to go on safari, and even iii) business men who need a truck to move their goods from one place to another.

Our every decision is driven by two main concepts, shared growth and environmental friendliness.

Our first product was built to create efficiencies in our public transportation system, specifically “matatus”. Our solution achieves growth for all players in the system by addressing the issue of traffic congestion caused by taxi idle time.

By creating a link between taxi commuters and taxi drivers, we eliminate idle time wasted by the drivers, increase the number of trips made per day, and increase profitability for all stakeholders in the system. It’s as simple as that.
