Ride-sharing companies like Uber and Taxify are doing quite well in the country. Now, there is yet another ride-hailing company in the country. This time around, the Ghanaian ride-sharing app, Fameko taxi, has launched special offers in Accra.
Fameko, translates from the Akan language as “take me away”. However, Fameko launched this special offers for both its drivers and their riders.
Fully packed services
The chief executive officer of the company, Kofi Agyapong, spoke to a GhanaWeb, about the new initiative. In the interview, Agyapong said the Fameko Taxi App has a service like the Fameko Luxury.

“If you are an individual and you need our services, we can give you competent drivers,” he affirmed.
Agyapong hyped Fameko, saying it is the only ride-sharing service that gives drivers accommodating charges in terms of rates. He also bragged that Fameko is designed to give protection to the drivers.
“Drivers are assured of competitive fares where customers pay by cash or mobile money.”
In addition to the above services, Fameko has insurance and vehicle tracking packages for drivers and vehicle owners who sign up.
On customer security, he highlighted Fameko’s system monitors the movement of drivers. The system, therefore, allows the company to know the drivers’ whereabouts and what is happening to them.
“We are able to track their identity if anybody cause harm to the driver or there is a theft on any issue, we can be able to track and know where the person is.”
Again, Fameko offers drivers prepaid services. This will allow drivers to load their Fameko Taxi Wallet to prevent issues of drivers owing the company.
Participants at the launch expressed their excitement because the Ghanaian company seems to be a listening outfit.
To them, Fameko has proven to listen to the concerns of drivers. They’re as well expecting Fameko to give competition to the other services.
The Fameko Taxi app is currently available for Android users.
