|Uber Joins Gokada, Max.ng To Launch Boat Taxis In Lagos by sleeksavbvy: 6:33pm On Jun 29, 2019|
The on-demand motor transport scene is getting really interesting in Lagos as competition has moved from land to sea.
On land, you have ride-hailing platforms like Uber and Taxify fighting for market-dominance while on the two-wheel side, you have Max.ng, Gokada, SafeBoda, and Oride. All in Lagos.
Gokada led the pack with the launch of Gboat, its on-demand boat service after it raised $5.3 million Series A round to scale its business. The funding round was led by Rise Capital and joined by Adventure Capital, IC Global Partners, and Illinois based First MidWest Group.
Days later, MAX.ng announced that disclosed that it has secured $7m funding round to scale moto-transport taxi in Africa. The company plans to use the funding to expand to 10 cities across West Africa, scale its technology infrastructure, deploy mobile payments in partnership with Mastercard, introduce an electric fleet and deploy new vehicle categories, including watercraft and three-wheeled tuk-tuk taxis.
Now, Uber Technology Inc. is planning to launch its boat business in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial capital and biggest city, to beat traffic congestion...
