It’s no wonder that 30,00 drivers have been added to the Bolt platform since they launched six months ago.

And with Bolt only taking 15% commission, almost half Ubers rate, I’m sure they will continue to grow in popularity with you guys, the drivers.

What can you expect at Bolt

All drivers undergo background checks and driver training before being allowed onto the Bolt platform.

The Bolt app includes trust-building features that reveal the driver’s photo, name,vehicle type and registration, as well as the driver’s rating, so passengers know who their drivers are before getting in the car.

Both drivers and passengers have multiple support channels at Bolt to voice any concerns ( 24 hour call centre ).

New Vehicle Categories

Last month, Bolt announced the launch of an XL category which gives customers access to larger capacity vehicles, typically SUVs and multi-purpose vehicles.

This category caters for bigger groups of up to six passengers and offers a cheaper alternative to large families for journeys to destinations such as the airport or weekend attractions, when compared to booking two regular private hire cars.
