Uber and Bolt are Ghana’s most famous private transportation companies which give out excellent service but it seems the narrative is changing.
Some ladies have taken to social media to register their frustrations over what they describe as rude and unprofessional harassment from uber and bolt drivers.
According to them, they receive strange calls from strange numbers at odd times and sometimes, love soliciting messages and video calls from these private transport drivers whose services they had contracted through their mobile applications.
According to one lady, she received a video call from an unknown number on WhatsApp only to realize he was the same driver who had dropped her off at work earlier.
She got frustrated after receiving similar calls from two other drivers and has since vowed never to use the services of mobile-assisted transport applications ever in her life.
Another lady named Sindi took to Facebook to vent her anger when one driver called her to check up on her. Social media users tagged the action “unprofessional” and “rude” and called out the management of the transport platforms to work on the evolving problems surrounding their platforms.
Redeemer, 22, said the driver kept calling her with different numbers after her trip.
“I ordered Bolt. When I got into the car the driver told me I was beautiful. He wanted to chat more but I did not want to engage him on that tangent.
I got home and saw a strange call. He introduced himself as the bolt driver who took me earlier. I asked if he called to inform me I had left something in the car but he said no. He was just calling to check up on me, he wants to be my friend. He started using flowery words. He called me the next day. I blocked the line but he kept calling with different lines whenever I blocked one. I warned him that if he did not stop worrying me I will report him to the bolt“ she recounted.
Those who experience this weird calling can also report to the administrators of the platforms for actions to be taken against the unprofessional drivers.
