Fielding questions from journalists on why the company chose to make the change, the CEO and co-founder, Bolt, Markus Villig, said Taxify, being the company’s first product was a taxi dispatch solution launched five years ago with a mission to make urban transportation more convenient and affordable.

“However, the company has evolved in leaps and bounds since its inception to now serve 25 million customers in over 30 countries globally, making it a leader in Europe and Africa,” Mr Villig said.

Uche Okafor, the company’s Regional Manager for West Africa, said the new name is for effortless movement around the city.
