The Professional E-hailing Drivers and Private Owners Association on Tuesday said it is in partnership with two indigenous e-hailing app companies to ease transport stress for Lagos residents.
The National President of PEDPA, Mr Idris Shonuga, who disclosed this to Financial Street, said the two new apps would replace the already existing apps in the country.
He said the indigenous apps would work with the template provided by the association, to ensure smooth and mutual relationship.
“These indigenous app companies would work with the templates and provide drivers with a good welfare package for riders’ satisfaction.
“This would enable the union to protect the collective interests of the drivers as decisions can now be jointly taken and approved before it is binding on both parties,” he stated.
Shonuga noted that drivers and riders endure shortcomings in the e-hailing industry without any mutual written agreement between the owners of the cars and the foreign app companies.
“As against the 20 per cent commission by the team giant app companies, the new apps is charging 15 per cent commission on each trip.
“And out of the 15 per cent, five per cent is dropped into the driver’s cooperative wallet and can be accessed for a quick fix,” he added.
