Bolt, a ride-hailing firm, has reposed confidence in the economy with the introduction of an award scheme to reward its drivers for their contribution to the growth of the firm.

As a result, four top performing Bolt drivers will be awarded with brand new 2021 Suzuki Celerio cars in recognition of their amazing service by the end of the firm’s 2021 driver reward contest.

The second edition of the annual Bolt driver reward contest kicked off on October 11, has been dubbed “Bolt Driver’s League”.

With this contest, Bolt, the leading ride-hailing platform in Africa is reaffirming its long-standing commitment and tradition of caring about its drivers who are the people that make its services possible.

The Country Manager of the firm, Mr David Kotey, at the launch of the award scheme in Accra, said “with the unveiling of the Bolt Driver’s League contest, we aim to build a community of drivers who will take pride and be passionate when serving passengers each time.

“In addition, we are delighted with the opportunities that the grand prizes will bring to the winning drivers”.

Driver’s league

The 2021 Bolt Driver’s league will have various activity and behavioural targets including finished rides and driver ratings.

The overall top driver in Ghana will be the one who will have the highest number of trips and maintain the highest ratings in the period under review.

Last year’s contest which was dubbed Bolt Mega Bonus Challenge recorded great participation across the country where three lucky drivers - Isaac Awotwe, Adam Okens and Andrew Osei - drove away with brand new Suzuki Swift Cars while over 50 drivers received gift hampers and home appliances.

This year’s contest which applies an exciting sport’s inspired raffle system will show appreciation to yet another batch of excellent drivers and will be held over a 10-week period starting October 11.

In addition to the brand-new cars, other rewards such as refrigerators and amazing home appliances will also be up for grabs in the Bolt driver’s league.
