Multinational mobility company Swvl that offers tech-enabled ridesharing services has discontinued two of its services in Kenya.
In a statement on Thursday, June 2, 2022, Swvl said it was suspending Swvl Daily intra-city rides in Nairobi, and Swvl Travel city-to-city rides.
Swvl was operating in Kenya with three different solutions, Swvl Daily, which is tailored for intra-city rides in Nairobi. Swvl Travel, which is tailored for City-to-City rides. Swvl Business which is tailored for Business-to-Business rides.
“In light of the global economic downturn, we are going to be gradually pausing our Swvl Daily intra-city rides in Nairobi, and Swvl Travel city-to-city rides. Swvl promised that having means of transportation that are reliable, comfortable, and affordable is not something fictional. We believe that every Kenyan should have this right, the right to commute safely everyday,” the company said.
