CanGo (Formerly SafeMotos) was founded in Rwanda in 2015 by two roommates – Peter Kariuki and Barett Nash, after they participated in an international startup accelerator. It was lauched as a form of Uber for motorcycle taxis in Africa, which employs telematic data in measuring the safety of the driver in real time. Currently, with about four years of experience and over 400,000 trips ordered in Kigali, the company is now launching as an on-demand ride-hailing service provider in Kinshasa.
The CanGo brand is a platform that is specifically designed for the bottom, middle and urban affluent pyramid classes in Africa. It is recognized by the Economist, the Guardian, National Geographic, Le Monde, CNN, BBC, Apple and others as one of the most innovative startups in Africa. Clients and interested parties can also follow SafeMotos on Twitter to learn more about their activities.
CanGo works towards offer having all drivers, including car taxis, motorcycle taxis and delivery services on a single platform to ensure that they benefit from the network efficiency.
