We aim to make adequate, reliable car hailing services accessible to all. By doing this, we are set to simplify payment processes, reduce the costs of trips, and bring a community-based approach to the car hailing service.”

One of the goals of Ekocab is to create a positively intimate car riding experience. It is changing the face of traditional car hailing-services in Nigeria by providing secure, transparent and honest transactions.

 The inceptors of the idea Segun Cole and Nathan Gideon during some research gathered that Nigerians are tired of unfair charges for trips and not being able to hop on a ride as at when due to surge and not there being a limit to the drivers on the road.
