Taxify is giving back to it driver and partners to help cushion the effects of increased fuel prices in Accra, Ghana.

In an email circulated to its driver-partners in Accra, Taxify said that it was putting this bonus in place to boost driver-partner earnings despite the hike in fuel prices. The ride-hailing service, which matches passengers with drivers via a smartphone app, typically takes a 15 percent commission, already 10% lower in comparison with similar ride-hailing apps. With this new bonus system, Taxify is giving driver-partners 5% back on each trip. This bonus will result in relief for driver-partners, better earnings and increased morale. “We want our driver-partners to know that we’re with them through everything and that includes increased fuel prices. Taxify believes that happy drivers equal happy riders and we’ll continue to put initiatives in place that not only keep driver-partners happy but overall make the experience of driving with Taxify even better” said Taxify’s Operations Manager, Albert Aryee.

This bonus follows a number of initiatives Taxify has introduced this year. The European ride-hailing app recently rolled out driver-destinations which it says allows drivers receive trips along the route to their destinations.
