MTN Extends Digital Inclusion to all in Partnership with YegomotoPosted By: Innocent MUVUNYI - On:29/11/2017
The Yegomoto Meter includes a GPS, which automatically calculates the price of the trip fare based on the distance travelled by the passenger. This innovative service will enable the 1.3 million active Mobile Money users to pay for Moto Fares with MTN Mobile Money.
Speaking about this exciting partnership, MTN’s Chief Business Officer, Mr Norman Munyampundu said, “MTN has the widest and largest network in the country, so it is only logical that we are key partners in promoting digital inclusion and encouraging e-commerce across Rwanda with Yegomoto. Yegomoto is changing the face of the Moto transport industry in Rwanda and we are glad to be a part of this journey.”

By April 2018, all 15,000 Moto Taxis operating in Kigali City will be equipped with Yegomoto meters, thus bringing an end to haggling over fares. In 2018, this service will be extended to all Moto Taxis across Rwanda. In the first 76 days since the launch, Yegomoto drivers have made 297,461 trips and covered 1,495,457 kilometres.
Mr Karanvir Singh, the Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Yego Innovision Ltd. said, “We are delighted to partner with MTN. With their countrywide coverage, Yegomoto will soon be available on all Moto Taxis - from the biggest town to the smallest village.”
MTN’s partnership with Yegomoto to bring this innovative cashless payment solution to the public reiterates the commitment of both companies in contributing to the national economic strategy on enhancing cashless transactions that offer convenience and security to all Rwandans.
