Gokada, though is focused on motorbike taxing, is somewhat similar to what innovative transportation companies such as Uber and Bolt (Taxify) offers. Customers can order for a ride via the Gokada website or via the mobile application which is geolocation-based.
With this innovation, prospective riders are offered worthy motorbike rides for several reasons. The regular motorbikes on used by ‘Okada’ riders are long banned while Gokada is allowed to run within Lagos, largely because its motorbikes are 200CC motorbikes. The 200CC motorbike is the least required on Lagos roads, according to the law signed by the former governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Raji Fashola, on August 3rd, 2012. Fashola outlawed motorbikes less than 200 CC engine capacities as they were deemed unworthy on Lagos roads.
Another reason why Gokada riders are offered worthy motorbike rides is the civility and approach of its riders, who are considered to not only be educated but also enlightened. As opposed to the regular helmets with on typical Lagos roads, the Gokada helmets are neat and regularly maintained.
