The drivers on this platforms are meant to pay a service fee of 25%, 20% and 15% on uber, bolt and yango respectively. According to drivers, uber blocks their accounts every two day until the service fee is paid. Bolt on the other hand bolt blocks drivers when their service fee reaches Gh¢ 70.00. While on Yango it is pay as you go.
There have been increased in the price of fuel but this online platforms refuses to increase fare prices.
