Share trip details

Always share your trip details with friends or family, this includes the car’s make, model registration number and live location via a shareable link. This will enable loved ones to track your journey.

The feature is activated by tapping the share trip icon in the trip details, once the trip is active.

Emergency Assist button

In the case of an emergency, use the in-app emergency assist button to promptly alert private armed response teams and emergency medical rescue services.

Trip monitoring 

Bolt recently introduced the trip monitoring feature as a means to enhance safety measures for commuters and drivers. The feature works by proactively engaging with riders and drivers in-app when a vehicle remains stationary for an extended period.

To use the feature, no action is required. Bolt will activate a prompt for you to check if everything is okay and you will be required to click on the Yes, I am okay button, should there be no concern.

Commuters are reminded to never take offline trips as safety features are inaccessible. This also affects investigations necessary in the future.

Commuters have access to Bolt Trip Protection cover, providing comprehensive insurance coverage against unexpected injuries medical expenses, and hospital stays.
