Okay folks, today we’ll be looking at a start-up with a difference I stumbled upon just recently. Named Gomyway (gomyway.com), this start-up aims to curb the hassles of transportation crisis in a unique never-seen-before scenario. Gomyway doesn’t exactly sends company owned taxis or pick-up cars for your travels, but… wait for it… allows normal car owners to assist other pedestrians shuttling intra and inter city.
You may ask how’s this even possible?, it’s simple gomyway Ride-sharing concept is a unique concept whereby the rider and the passenger come to a mutual relationship, the car owner agrees to offer a lift to one or more persons usually at a very small fee (for fueling his/her ride). The gomyway platform helps the car owner and the would be passenger set an appoint as to what time the car owner would pick-up the passenger and at what pick-up location. (N.B: Pick-up location and time of pick-up is dependent on the car owner!)
More plausible is the fact that the service comes at no charge or cost whatsoever to either parties (that is aside the stipulated ‘fuel fee’ the car owner would request from the passenger), the new ride sharing scheme by gomyway is a very plausible and encouraging idea. Not just for the easing of transportation hassles, but for the re-kindering of the brotherly love we Nigerians are known for. With gomyway.com you could help make someone’s day by sharing your ride and making new friends in the process.
If you are a car owner and would love to share your ride with someone, simply log on to www.gomyway.com/register to sign-up as a ride-sharer, enter your details and you are done. Gomyway team would run verification of your details to ensure the safety of would-be passengers, same thing would be done when a passenger requests for a ride via the platform, so there’s a zero tolerance to risks associated with picking up strangers and accepting lifts from strangers. Please be kind to offer a ride to someone soon. Happy ride-sharing!
P.S: There’s also another of such ride-sharing platform called ‘Jekalo’ – didn’t know about it until today.
