Wave-making Taxi operator, Taxify, has introduced a new category to wow its numerous clients in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.
A statement from the company, signed by its country manager, Uche Okafor, said the new service category named Comfort, began operations in Abuja on June 26.
According to the statement, Comfort will enable service consumers in the capital city to have an alternative to the existing Taxify categories.
“The new category is positioned to offer riders more choice in the way they move. Comfort will also have pre-selected upscale vehicles combined with highly rated driver-partners to offer riders a great experience on their trips”, the statement read.
“We want to cater to a broader audience and offer more choice to riders in the way that they move. We are all about rider choice at Taxify which is why we have introduced the Comfort Category for the people of Abuja to have more options when they desire to move in style for events such as a business meeting, date night or a night about town”, Okafor stated.
To wow service consumers further, Okafor said that the launch of the category will be celebrated with a 15 percent discount on all fares.
He said: “It’s a market that is ready. So far, interest in the new category has been impressive. We already have hundreds of driver-partners signed up to be part of the Comfort category and are increasingly onboarding new partners every day. Driver-partners with vehicle models from 2009 till date can sign up on partners.taxify.eu and register to drive on the Comfort category.”
