FCTA Licenses Nairaxi and Bolt for e-Taxi Operations in Abuja, to Fight Insecurity

To address insecurity in the nation’s capital, the FCT administration, through its Transportation secretariat, has granted licenses to Nairaxi and Bolt to operate ride-hailing apps in the territory under its Public Transport Management Scheme.

The approval designates Bolt and Nairaxi as the exclusive licensed ride-hailing operators authorized to provide on-demand transport and logistics services using mobile applications in FCT.

This move aims to tackle insecurity challenges through verifiable data tracking and other significant benefits in the nation’s capital. The statement reads:

“The licensing of NAIRAXI and Bolt will improve and regulate e-ride-hailing operations while elevating service excellence in the FCT. The FCTA will initiate immediate enforcement operations to clamp down on unlicensed operators in Abuja. The Public Transport Management Scheme also warns of a potential ban on operators without the FCTA Public Transport Management License.”

The statement said FCTA’s license is a platform that allows operators to work within specified regulations, ensuring commuters’ confidence and safety. It further explained that the NAIRAXI Mobile App and Bolt authorization are based on their top-notch digital transport and logistics services in the FCT. Bolt is one of the leading transportation mobility companies in the world, operating in 500 cities worldwide, with more than 3 million drivers and over 150 million customers.

NAIRAXI, on the other hand, is an indigenous mobility tech company focusing on intelligent mass transportation systems and ride-hailing technologies. The firm won the innovator’s competition organized by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) in February 2023.
