Bolt Rolls Out Scheduled Rides Feature in Key South African Cities


Bolt, a prominent ride-hailing service across Africa, has introduced its latest offering, the ‘Scheduled Rides’ feature, in key cities such as Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, and Qqeberha.

This innovative feature empowers users to book rides up to 72 hours in advance, ensuring hassle-free travel planning.

Scheduled Rides alleviates concerns about driver availability during peak hours by allowing users to secure their transportation well in advance. While this convenience comes with an additional cost, it ensures a reliable and stress-free ride experience.

The introduction of this feature holds particular significance for business users, who can now utilize the Ride Booker feature within the Bolt Business account to schedule rides for work-related purposes or for accommodating business guests.

Moreover, riders have the flexibility to choose their preferred category of service and provide specific instructions to drivers, enabling a tailored experience to meet individual needs.

One of the key advantages of this new feature is the absence of surge pricing, providing users with price stability and peace of mind when booking their trips.

Sandra Suzanne Buyole, Bolt’s PR Manager, expressed excitement about the launch of Scheduled Rides, emphasizing Bolt’s commitment to enhancing convenience and reliability for riders. This initiative underscores Bolt’s ongoing dedication to revolutionizing urban transportation and ensuring a seamless travel experience for its users.

With Scheduled Rides, Bolt users can now plan their journeys with confidence, knowing that their ride will be ready and waiting for them at the designated time. As Bolt continues to innovate and improve mobility solutions, Scheduled Rides represents another milestone in the company’s mission to redefine urban transportation dynamics.
