From cars to tricycles, we aim to be the smartest way to move in all 33 (and counting) cities in Nigeria.
So whether you’re going to the beach in Lagos, heading to a meeting in Abuja or just visiting friends and family in Port Harcourt, get a ride in just a few taps.
Requesting a ride with the Bolt app is easy. First, download the app, then follow these steps:
Now that you know how to order a ride, you might be wondering, “But how are Bolt prices set?”
Bolt trip prices are set using the following parameters:
These fares and rates differ for each city to ensure you have the most affordable way to move around (while giving drivers reliable and profitable earnings).
After adding your pickup point, any intermediate stops, and your final destination, you’ll see a fare estimate for the ride. Please remember that this estimate is based on traffic and timing estimates when the order is made.
This fare estimate isn’t always the same as the final fare because conditions may change. There may be more or less traffic on the road, drivers may use alternative routes, or trips could take longer than estimated — these could all lead to a different final fare.
Dynamic pricing (commonly referred to as surge pricing) is a tool used to adjust rates based on various local factors to maintain balance between available drivers and prospective passengers on the platform.
You’ll see a surge notice in the app when there are too many riders requesting rides compared to the number of drivers available in the area. This price surge is only temporary — it encourages drivers to get on the road so that the increase in ride demand is met.
If your trip isn’t urgent, simply delay your request for a few minutes until more drivers are available.
Thanks for choosing our reliable, safe and fast rides.
Whenever you need a ride, just open the Bolt app to get going! And if you haven’t got it yet, download the app today.
