We studied how Moto Taxi operate and their challenges then we came up with the concept of installing meter on all motorcycle.
“It is only with the continuous support of RURA, RNP and other Stakeholders that we have reacher where we are Today. We promised” Haggle Free Rides” and now we will be installing meters on all motorcycle in Rwanda. This will bring an end to haggling as we promised. We promised ”Hassle Free Rides” and we have brought cashless payment to Moto Taxi; Even today can pay for a yegomoto with MTN Tap&Pay and soon the facility will be extended to Tico and Airtel as well. We will not stop there but we will also integrate with bank to provide seamless payment from their walllets and bank accounts” added CEO Karanvir Singh.
“Today we are delighted to announce that YEGOMOTO has received a license from RURA to install Intelligent Connected Fare Meters on all motorcycle in Rwanda, we have been asked to complete this process in 9 months. As the ONLY Licensed ICFM Solution Provider we have promised to do our best to meet the challenge.
As you probably already know that RURA has new Motorcycle Taxi Regulation that makes it compulsory for every Moto Taxi to have an Intelligent Connected Fare Meter installed and to use it for every ride.
This ground breaking step by RURA is another first in the world and will ensure that Rwanda will be the fast-track to a cashless Economy as per the government vision”CEO further explained.
