Sweet & Easy Commute in Lagos with the Easy Taxi Mobile App! Watch Bankole Cardoso on CNN’s African Start Up



Easy Taxi is a mobile app which allows you request a taxi any where in Lagos at any time of the day,  and CNN‘s African Start Ups takes us on a quick journey with Bankole Cardoso, the founder of Easy Taxi, Nigeria.

Cardoso started Easy Taxi in Nigeria in 2013 because he wanted a simple way to aid commuting in Lagos. He also mentioned that he hopes to standardize pricing of taxis around the country.

It’s as easy as the name is. I wanted it to be simple for customers, very easy for users to download the app and request a taxi at a click”, Cardoso stated on CNN Africa Start-up.

Check the video out and share your thoughts on this business idea.

      Jeez, are you that desperate? na your type they make people think every single lady is desperate. Men should seek you out not the other way. I bet you can’t even say what the easy mobile app is about.

      A ha, it’s just a joke. Does the app work? How effective is it? He’s quite handsome. But these big boyz of Lagos marry other big girlz especially if their papa get name.

      Ole (joking), he is a Cardoso. They know who they marry. His sister abi is it his cousin married an Alakija. What is your pedigree missy. What do you have to offer. Who your papa be? Get my drift.

    Quite innovative. Hope he also developed an app to ease Lagos traffic. One thing is requesting a cab, another is the time it takes the cab to get to you.

    You guys are unnecessarily mean! My goodness, she was probably just joking. Stop using BN for therapy. Know the difference between a joke and a serious comment.
    Great initiative Bankole.

      lol! valid question tho. I guess if we had corporate cab companies with inbuilt gprs system it might ease people of these kind of worries
