Bolt Taxis: Bolt has announced today a new way customers can access taxi services through their browsers.
According to the company, this the most effective way for customers and riders with smartphones that are limited on internal storage, weak network connection, and other issues associated with low-end phones.
This new way, the company says is for customers who are conscious of the amount of money spent on data, or just want to book using their PC.
Ola Akinnusi, Bolt’s Country Manager Said, “At Bolt, we’re always working on making urban transportation more accessible and convenient. The option of using the Bolt Web App to request a ride is an all-inclusive step to have everyone enjoy the convenience of transportation while taking into account the concerns related to data costs, their cell phone capabilities, storage, the strength of their connection, and the need to order a ride using their computers. Bolt Web App can work on any device that has a web browser, including tablets, laptops, and even phones with limited storage and poor connection from time to time.”
He added that, “We assure customers there is a Bolt ride available around the corner for everyone irrespective of their means of mobile model or connections. Our users have another possibility to order affordable and reliable rides across the 16 urban centers where we operate.”
Bolt Web App functionality can be accessed by inputting a cell phone number and submitting the OTP number sent to the cellphone number provided by the rider. Once authentication is complete, the rider can select the destination of their choice.
The rides ordered in Bolt Web App can be paid for in cash and using card options. Riders can still rate their trip and driver for their completed ride.
The new web app is accessible via the URL bolt.eu.
