Bolt has revised its prices across all cities in Kenya in response to the increased cost of fuel in the country.
This has resulted in a matching increment in the Per Km fares for Bolt rides by an average of Ksh 2 for each Km completed on-trip. Bolt, previously charged KES 25 a kilometer on its budget ride category (dubbed Lite) and the new changes will see the prices go up by Ksh 1.90 to KES 26.90 per kilometer in Nairobi.
The changes will be implemented across all Bolt ride categories in all the cities where Bolt currently operates and will vary from town to town in line with the ERC guidelines on fuel prices per city.
The Base category will now attract an addition of Ksh 2.10 per kilometer in Nairobi and Ksh 1.70 per kilometer in Mombasa, while riders in the economy (Lite) category will now pay an additional KES 1.50 per kilometer in Nakuru and Kisumu towns.
Tuk Tuk and Boda boda services in Mombasa, will each attract an increment of Ksh 0.60 per kilometer.
Boda boda services in other towns will attract price increment as follows; Nairobi Ksh 0.80 per kilometer, Nakuru Ksh 0.70 per kilometer and Ksh 0.60 per kilometer in both Kisumu and Eldoret.
