Bolt’s been pretty busy in 2020. The company earlier this month launched Business Delivery to help smaller companies ferry goods to customers. Today, it launched Bolt Food, a service it first teased a year ago.
Essentially an Uber Eats and Mr D Food rival, Bolt Food will deliver essential goods including “groceries, pet food, health supplements and off-the-shelf medications” to users currently under lockdown.
It’ll first debut in Cape Town, but will roll out to other areas across South Africa in the “coming days”.
The Bolt ride-hailing app has also added two new categories.
Users in Sandton and Rosebank can now select a tuk-tuk as a mode of transport. The service is a partnership with Shesha Tuks, and will offer users fares up to 20% lower than a traditional car.
Finally, Bolt Van will launch in Gauteng with “additional city roll-outs to follow”.
“Bolt Van offers up to three passengers the opportunity to ride together in a seven (or more) seater vehicle, in line with Government’s regulations on physical distancing when using ride-hailing services,” Bolt said in a statement.
