Bolt is a great app, so their mission is to bring fast, reliable and affordable transportation to people in Ghana. COVID-19 Pandemic has made people afraid of taking public transport, so the other alternative is to use a mobile transportation app.

I recommend Bolt because they just introduced Bolt Lite which helps you get affordable rides in Ghana. This article will show you how.
