SafeBoda to resume its operations in Kenya in February


Ride-hailing platform SafeBoda has announced that it’s resuming operations in Kenya more than a year after leaving the market.

The company has revealed that it will be back in the country on February 10th, 2024.  

SafeBoda launched in Kenya in 2018 and had a community of users and business value chain which extended to more than 4000 riders in Nairobi. In November 2020, it however exited the market saying the coronavirus pandemic has had a significant effect on its business. 

‘’SafeBoda has made a very difficult decision to pause Rides and Send services from the 27th of November 2020.’’ the company said while announcing the exit.

“While Nairobi is seeing some economic recovery from COVID-19, boda transportation has been hit hard. This has meant our business cannot sustainably operate in this environment and unfortunately, the timeline for a full recovery cannot be certain,” it added.

The startup said it would focus on growing its operations in Uganda and Nigeria. 

SafeBoda resuming its operations in Kenya in February marks a new chapter for SafeBoda which had become a favorite among most commuters in Kenya.  The company has not revealed details on pricing but we will be on the lookout for more details.
