While drivers aligned with Uber, Taxify and Little in Kenya go up in arms about reduced incomes, a new player, Sharecab comes in with a proposition to solve that for them. By eliminating driver commissions entirely. What they do instead is charge a Kshs 2000 monthly membership fee and that’s it.
The owners of ShareCab are a software company, just like Little is owned by Craft Silicon. These are the titans in the battle for taxi market. Now it will be interesting to note that the owner of ShareCab was also a co-founder of the flopped My1963, a payments card that was launched by Safaricom for the PSV sector, to digitize payments.
