Globally, Yango is already an established player in the transportation industry and has quickly gained a position as one of the local leaders on the African continent. After extensive expansion across the CIS, Middle East and Europe (including Kazakhstan, Armenia, Israel, Finland and others), Yango turned its attention to Africa in 2018, starting with Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana. Both countries have proven to be hugely successful. Four years later, Yango has landed in Abidjan, Bouaké, Accra, Kumasi, Douala, Yaounde, Dakar, Lusaka, Luanda, Brazzaville and Kinshasa , and just started in Algiers. The service has ambitions to continue growing on the continent and is focused on increasing the number of cities in the coming months. This seems entirely plausible, since the company is increasing its rides in Africa by a factor of seven each year. One of Yango’s key benefits to the African market is its proprietary technology that provides a safer and more convenient ride experience. In addition to continuously improving its own maps and routing systems and providing passengers with safety features (such as the option to share routes with trusted contacts), the company is always looking for new experiments and experiences based on people in the countries where it operates ‘s new features. These experiments include the Combo (Partage) service class, where users can choose to ride with other users to reduce the price of a ride without substantially extending the route; the option to make up to 10 stops during the ride to run errands or shop around the city; and Motorcycle with enhanced safety features (now available in Cameroon).
