Taxify is rebranding as Bolt

Ride-hailing company Taxify is renaming itself as Bolt.

Bolt is the name the business has been using for its electric scooter service, and it will now be used for all the company’s offerings.

I always thought the name was too restrictive, should have foreseen this. You see this quite often with brands where the business has evolved so far from the initial offering that the name is now unrelated to what they do/sell.

Use Taxify often and always chat to the drivers about their experiences.
All the drivers I encountered were either Zimbabwean or Congolese.
About half of them have been robbed / held up at knivepoint - all of them had cash customers running away at the end of the trip.
Non of them feel safe and always wonder about the next customer.
They don't like doing Goodwood / Parow / Bellville area in Cape Town

As in, if you see one of their vehicles in proximity of a minibus or metered taxi.... "bolt!" :barefoot:
