Bangkok--29 Jul--Spark Communications
Bolt, the leading on-demand transportation platform in Europe and Africa announces the pilot of its service in Bangkok, Thailand today with more than 2000 drivers ready to start accepting rides.

Bolt is a free mobile application that connects drivers and passengers. Bolt allows passengers to conveniently request a driver to collect them wherever they are and take them where they want to go in a quick, reliable and affordable way. Drivers registered to the platform can earn money by accepting rides through the application. In order to become a Bolt driver, a person has to have a car and all necessary licenses required by the local regulations.

The company has been built around offering the lowest commissions for drivers and the lowest ride prices for passengers. For a minimum of 6 months, Bolt in Thailand commits to charging drivers no commission for using the platform and offers fares 20% lower than other competitors on the market.

Bolt is easy to use: passengers download the secure and free Bolt app from Apple App Store or Google Play Store and set up a user profile. When passengers are ready to ride, they simply open the app, set their location and their intended destination. The app then gives an upfront cost estimate for the trip. Once passengers accept the cost estimate, the app alerts drivers nearby who accept the ride.

Once a driver has accepted the ride, passengers are able to see their driver’s details and can track the driver in real-time — making it easy to be sure that they get safely into the correct vehicle with the correct driver. When the ride is complete, payment is made in cash.
