An e-hailing taxi system called TodaZim, a service that provides a marketplace where people seeking transportation are matched with available drivers ready to take them to their destinations has been introduced.
In an interview, TodaZim’s Head of Operations, Mr Nyasha Shereni said the system started functioning on Thursday last week and it is very much like Uber (an e-hailing taxi system mainly used in South Africa, America and other countries.)
Mr Shereni said the system works through a mobile application that entails a person to order a taxi ride through his or her mobile phone using the application any time.
“It is an on demand service that is powered by a smartphone application where a rider can hire a private driver to be taken to his or her destination.” He said.
He said the system will soon be used throughout the Country but at the moment it is only functioning in Harare.
“We’ve built the system to cover the whole of Zimbabwe, but at the moment it is available in Harare and we also have ready drivers in other cities and towns ready to be activated as soon as all the necessary checks are done.” Mr Shereni said.
When asked how the new mobile app is going to benefit the nation of Zimbabwe, Mr Shereni said they have come with this new initiative so as to impact communities and to rebuild the nation.
“Toda is here to impact communities through smart technology solutions that enhance convenience and foster development. This on demand service is one of the many solutions that we are bringing, with the mind set of rebuilding our nation.” He said.
The mobile app is available for download from the Google Play Store and the Apple AppStore.
