Weeks after Taxify had launched its moto-taxi in Kampala, it was rumored that Kenya’s own transportation network firm; Mondo Ride was launching in Kampala as well. Since it was just a rumor, new reports state that the riding hailing service is confirmed to be launched in Uganda, though there was no mention of when.

Mondo Ride is a multinational online transportation network company founded in UAE by Troels Andersen and based in Nairobi, Kenya. Their launch in Kampala, will bring both a taxi and boda boda service join the already competitive market that has Uber, Taxify (as well as the moto-taxi TaxifyBoda, and SafeBoda), Friendship Taxis, Quick Taxi, Executive Taxis, to mention a few.

The riders will be in position to book for a large or lux or standard ride or a moto-taxi (Boda Boda). A one option that all other riding hailing firms are missing.

Mondo Ride seeks to connect passengers with nearby drivers and ensures getting a ride within a short amount of time, as well as, guaranteeing safety and comfort for the passenger.

Just like any other riding hailing service, users can order for their ride right from the application. The Mondo Ride app is available on Android and iOS app stores.

The riding hailing service is getting more and more intense for every day that passes by. What will happen next to local taxis and cabs that aren’t attached to any firm.
