Boda Boda riders set to launch bike hailing app

The Boda Boda Safety Association of Kenya has launched a new app called Juu boda that will connect riders to customers in what the Association says will streamline the industry and inject discipline.

Speaking in Nairobi when he condemned the ban of riders in Nairobi’s CBD, the National Chairman of the Association Kevin Mubadi said they have 800,000 members who are ready to join the app, which will work the same way taxi-hailing apps work, but with additional services.

The association, which says the app will be officially launched by the end of January, contracted a New Zealand-based company to develop the platform.
