Bolt To Grow Its Services And Offer Chances For Over 300,000 Additional Drivers


Feb. 21, 2023, 10:48 a.m.

Multinational ride-hailing company Bolt is scaling its operations in Africa over the next two years in order to grow its services and offer chances for over 300,000 additional drivers and couriers to join the network by 2023.

Bolt intends to do this by investing €500 million ($530 million) in Africa over the next two years. The company also announced that it will invest Ksh13.4 billion ($100 million) in its Kenyan arm. The investment will see Bolt expand to more cities across Kenya. Already, Bolt operates across 16 locales in Kenya, including Nairobi, Meru, and Karatina.

Speaking on the announcement, Bolt Kenya country manager, Linda Ndung’u, said, “Bolt shall double down on increasing its footprint across Kenya by expanding its services into more cities and town centers. This will provide access to affordable and quality services to customers whilst providing earning opportunities for drivers in Kenya.”
