About SafeMotos

SafeMotos is making Kigali’s motorcyle taxis safer and more convenient. Founded by longtime Kigali residents Nash and Peter Kariuki, they have both been suffering from the danger of riding moto taxis. The current system where a customer has no idea whether a moto driver is on his first day on the job or a seasoned veteran is a problem as customers cannot control the quality of their driver.Their solution is SafeMotos, a smartphone application which makes motos safer and more convenient. Customers simply instruct the app where they want to be picked up from, instruct the app where they want to go, then choose a star rating for the quality of driver they want. Customers will be able to pay more money to get a better driver, while also getting the convenience of being able to be picked up from anywhere.The expected launch date for the SafeMotos application in Kigali is this May.
