KEY POINTS

The offer will be automatically applied on all fuel purchases made by drivers on the Bolt platform using the RUBiS Card at any RUBiS, Kenol, Kobil, and Gulf Energy stations countrywide.




Bolt has forged a partnership with Rubis Energy Kenya to offer drivers who operate on the Bolt platform to make the most of the discounted fuel prices due to the escalating fuel prices in recent times.

The partnership will see Bolt drivers get a prepaid RUBiS Card that will allow them to enjoy a KES 4 discount per liter of fuel and a world-class convenience while at a filling station. The offer will be automatically applied on all fuel purchases made by drivers on the Bolt platform using the RUBiS Card at any RUBiS, Kenol, Kobil, and Gulf Energy stations countrywide.

“Bolt continues to invest in innovative ways that can reduce driver’s cost of doing business.  We acknowledge the huge financial burden on the drivers concerning the increased fuel prices in the country and how this affects their overall earnings. Our analysis shows that a primary car driver already spends +KES 34,000 on fuel per month, forming a substantial portion of their monthly earnings. We believe that this collaboration with RUBiS Energy Kenya will make it possible for drivers to access clean fuel at an affordable price, thereby improving their take-home earnings.” Said Kenneth Micah, Regional Manager, Bolt East Africa.

The drivers must fill in a google form provided by Bolt to benefit from the incentive and collect their cards at the RUBiS Station specified in each form (one pick-up point per city). The drivers can conveniently top-up their RUBiS card either through instant M-PESA Mobile money (Paybill number that will be provided) or through a direct cash top-up at any RUBiS, Kenol, Kobil, and Gulf Energy Service station countrywide.

The RUBiS Card is a fuel management system that gives motorists total control of their fuel-related expenses and convenience as it transacts on a real-time settlement platform. It is based on smart card technology and offers practicality and efficiency when making payments at the station.

Jean-Christian Bergeron – Group CEO and Managing Director RUBiS Energy East Africa said, “Our primary purpose at RUBiS is to bring convenience and value to our customers, with the promise of ‘Making your life’s journey better.  With this, we are proud to partner with Bolt to offer drivers convenience, value, and a world-class experience with the RUBiS Card at our retail service stations.”

The RUBiS cards will be available to drivers on the Bolt platform at a negotiated amount of KES 350. Bolt will subsidize about 5 liters worth of fuel to its top 1,000 drivers.

Bolt and RUBiS Energy Kenya will continue to evaluate additional ways to reduce driver operational expenses for more significant benefits of plying their trade on the Bolt platform.
