Brand Story

The formation of Saba Ride was inspired by a visit to Nairobi in November 2021, where the need for a homegrown ride-hailing solution became apparent. It was observed that all ride apps were owned by foreign companies, none of which were Kenyan or African. What started as a casual conversation with a Yellow taxi driver evolved into a mission to launch an African product.

Three months of intensive research and meticulous business development planning followed. Face-to-face meetings with current drivers for other app service providers provided eye- opening insights  into the industry’s shortcomings.  Drivers shared their struggles – long hours, sleeping in cars, and the inability to spend time with  their  families due to  high commission fees. These stories resonated deeply and became the driving force behind Saba Ride’s mission.

Saba Ride committed to offering better service with  low commission fees, ensuring that drivers could take home more of their earnings. Our commission fees are fixed at 7%, the lowest in the industry. This commitment to drivers and users alike forms the foundation of our brand.

Looking ahead,   Saba Ride is committed to continuous innovation and expansion into new territories. We are dedicated to evaluating industry trends, developing growth strategies, and creating digital,  and traditional marketing campaigns that reflect our values and services. With a unique support and management team in every country we operate, we are poised to make a lasting impact on the ride-hailing industry.
