With the emergence of various taxi apps, only one Taxi app can clinch the Best Taxi App of the year title. According to the just concluded Nigeria Technology Awards (Click here to read about NT award), Easy Taxi came, saw and conquered.
For those who don’t know, Easy Taxi was a pioneer in the Nigerian taxi hailing and revolutionized urban transportation. This shone the light of opportunities for similar taxi apps to move into the country.
Upon receiving the award, Adaora Asala, Managing Director of Easy Taxi Nigeria and also a #WomanInTech made the following remarks:
Easy Taxi is extremely honored to be recognized for our efforts to revolutionize the transportation industry. We have always aspired to be more than just another taxi app, but a tech company committed to modeling entrepreneurship as a tool for Nigeria’s development.We hope that Easy Taxi’s success continues to serve as a powerful reminder to our peers, and the next generation of tech leaders, that innovation and social responsibility need not be viewed as separate or opposing concepts. Rather, and particularly in a developing country like ours,technology can and should be a powerful force for development, with its impact felt not just by the elite, but by everyone.
And so we humbly accept this award as a token of encouragement to continue our work:
– equipping Lagos and Abuja drivers with technology to earn more income and improve their livelihoods
– providing a safer and more convenient transportation option for urban commuters.
– and launching our app in new cities to be announced in 2016
Thank you once again for this incredible award. Enjoy the evening. Drink responsibly. And should you have one drink too many, please don’t drive: #RideEasy
Congratulations Easy Taxi!
