Below you will read a story that amazes
but let me first give simpler examples happening everyday
iniitally the rider saw 500 naira as the cost of the ride but on arrival was billed 800 Naira ! many people are complaining that bolt gives you a small bill to entice you to take the ride but when you get to your destination it is suddenly higher a price you would never have agreed to in the first place ! This is happening everywhere lagos abuja benin city .
when the passenger complained that this is not the price the Bolt Driver Got AGGRESSIVE ! the passenger just quietly paid up .this happened in benin city gra
just imagine a 4km ride for 800 naira thats 200 naira per kilometer ! Technology is supposed to make things cheaper easier and safer but this is not the case
that is the driver really uncouth human being . you wont want to enter his car i bet you ! so bolt where ever you are . one way or the other you will leave nigeria .

Another Really Scary Occurrence
A Bolt customer recently cried out on social media after one of the companies drivers overbilled her the sum of N12,200 for a trip that was supposed to cost N800.
The customer took to her Twitter page to narrate how she took a Bolt cab from Obanikoro to Gbagada which was estimated at between N700-N800 on the Bolt app. It was also a card trip.
What really happened? According to the aggrieved customer, after her ride from Obanikoro to Gbagada, she was prompted by Bolt that her card details can’t sort out her bill due to lack of funds.
She said she became worried because she noticed that the estimated price (which was supposed to be N800) had now increased to N12,200. How could this have possibly happened for a journey of such a distance?
Apparently, the Bolt driver that drove her had left his meter running after her trip ended. Interestingly, he drove all the way from Gbagada where he dropped her off, to Sango-Ota in Ogun State. All the while, the meter was on. This is how the bill piled up.
The Driver’s Reaction: The lady added that when she called the said driver, he responded that maybe it was twin brother that must have used his car for the trip. He then hung up.
Bolt’s Response: The passenger went further to state that she emailed the company and they responded that the driver partner had technical issues ending the trip at her drop off location. This is why the meter was left running until the Bolt technical team terminated it from their system.
What’s next? Many of the customer’s followers had reacted to her Twitter post, asking if the extra fee will be waved off from the customer as it clearly was not her fault that her trip incurred extra charges.
Many also questioned if Bolt will allow its customers to be ripped off of such an amount because of their technical fault or would they resolve it at their end and proffer solutions to their aggrieved customers who have been victims of similar “technical glitches”.
attempts to contact Bolt for further clarification on this issue. However, all efforts to establish contact proved abortive.
