Car-pooling app launched in Cape Town
Cape Town – South Africa has a locally developed ride sharing application that seeks to match travellers with drivers.
The app startup uGoMyWay is better defined as a car-pooling service which matches drivers with passengers travelling to the same destination.
But it’s not aimed at taking on ride sharing giant Uber, now valued at over $50bn.
“Fortunately, we are not in the same market as Uber. We would not want to compete with them. Uber is very much an e-hailing go-somewhere-now solution. It’s a shame they used the term ‘ride share’, as theirs is a very twisted definition of it,” uGoMyWay team member Patho Tebese told Fin24.
The app – which was developed in Cape Town suburb Kenilworth – is a modern take on getting a lift to work or school.
