“We’ve developed products that offer better alternatives for almost every purpose a car serves. We’re committed to collaborate with cities to help people consider shared mobility options like ride-hailing and light vehicles to create more sustainable urban areas," Markus Villig, founder of Bolt, commented.

Latest Jobs

Bolt was first founded in 2013 by a 19-year-old named Markus Villig. Bolt's mission is to promote the freedom of movement where people are not forced to buy a car to travel.

His inspiration behind Bolt was a problem he faced regarding getting a taxi ride, which was not only expensive, but also time-consuming.

Community Q&A

After years of development, Bolt has established itself primarily in the European and African markets, with over 75 million customers combined.

What differentiates Bolt from other ride hailing firms is that all of Bolt's rides are carbon-neutral, aiding their Green Plan to:
