Opera-founded startup, OPay, has introduced OTrike, a tricycle hailing service, in the commercial city of Aba, Abia state, Nigeria.
In 2018, the disruptive startup started operations as a mobile payments platform reaching Nigeria’s huge unbanked population. It has since diversified its product offerings into motorcycle ride-hailing, ORide and food delivery service, OFood.
Nearly a year after entering the Nigerian market, the Chinese-backed startup has come with yet another service, involving commercial tricycles (popularly referred to as kekes).
The new tricycle hailing service is making its debut in Aba and like ORide, discounts apply on every trip less than ₦400 ($1.10) within the first month of launching (August).
