Uber rival Bolt adds multi-destination functionality to app

European Uber rival Bolt has added new functionality to its app allowing customers to request up to three stops during their ride for an estimated fare for the entire journey.

The multiple destinations feature is being rolled out globally to Bolt users on Android and iOS this month.

It has been developed for groups of passengers requiring different final destinations along a route and for customers collecting people on the way to a shared final stop.

Bolt offers an XL category in London with access to vehicles suitable for groups of up to six passengers.

Sam Raciti, Bolt UK country manager, said: “The new multiple destinations feature makes it easy for customers to stop along their route while having confidence in knowing the estimated fare before beginning their journey.

“We regularly review customer and driver feedback on ways to improve our offering and this feature was a popular request.”

“Bolt believes mobility should be convenient, fast and seamless and we are always looking for ways to improve our service for passengers and drivers.

“The addition of this new functionality is another step towards achieving our goal of delivering the most rewarding urban travel experience.”

Bolt says it is seeing rapid growth in London since launching last June. More than 1.5 million customers signed-up over the second half of 2019 and it has 30,000 drivers on-boarded.
