Ethiopia’s first app-based taxi service is expanding into West Africa

Ethiopia’s first e-hailing taxi service is scaling beyond the streets of Addis Ababa. ZayRide, which launched in July 2016, is expanding to the Liberian capital, Monrovia. In collaboration with the Liberian web solutions firm Hak Technologies, the Ethiopian on-demand taxi service will introduce 200 cars by August this year, says founder Habtamu Tadesse.
