A Ghanaian owned transport company has entered the ride-hailing market.
Swift-Wheels Transport Company Limited launched its ride-hailing application ‘SWIFTWHEELS‘ at a media event today, September 13, 2019, at its office.
The high-tech ride app is a mobile application that allows users to book rides which are Convenient, reliable and affordable.
SwiftWheels helps to save cost for the Rider, who can complete a journey with as little as GH ₵ 1.70.
In a bid to present its riders with exceptional services, the ride-hailing company offers four services.
- SWIFTGO: This is the basic service which connects cabs to commuters in the cities.
- RIDEWITHME: The driver in this context could be corporate workers who intend to save money by sharing their rides with other riders on the Swift Wheels platform. This rider and driver (vehicle owner) share the same route thus becomes economical for both users.
- PADDY RIDE: This service is much flexible in its delivery; riders can connect with other riders with the same destination and/or route to share the cost as with carpooling. Paddy Ride costs relatively lower as compared to “Ride with me” and “SwiftGo” since riders share the cost of the cumulative journey depending on the time and distance a rider lasts during the journey.
- SWIFTTAXI: Swift Taxi operates at places where SwiftGo, RideWithMe and Paddy Ride services are not available.
