Cape entrepreneurs create car pool app to combat congestion

uGoMyWay is a ride-share and car pool mobile application invented in a bid to solve traffic congestion across Cape Town.

Founders Sipho Ndimande and Chris Megan say the app also encourages residents to make friends and build stronger communities.

uGoMyWay allows users to safely find drivers and passengers that commute to and from the same area, offers a chat platform to make lift arrangements and the ability to share the ride and costs.

The app can be downloaded free on PlayStore for Android cellphone users.

The solution is that we simply want to make better use of the road network and allow technology to help people connect to each other.

Chris Megan, co-founder uGoMyWay
