TREEP deploys tech feature to boost safety of commuters

In response to rising insecurity affecting ride-hailing services in the country, TREEP, an indigenous ride-hailing service, has announced the adoption of an SOS feature aimed at enhancing safety for commuters.

The SOS feature allows both passengers and drivers to signal distress to their loved ones with a simple double tap of the SOS button on their screens. This action immediately shares the user’s location with three pre-selected emergency contacts from their SOS list.

During the official launch of TREEP in Abuja, Dickson Akpologha, founder and chief operating officer of TREEP formerly known as Regal Chauffeur, while highlighting the benefits of the security feature explained that Treep ensures secure journeys by conducting thorough background checks on drivers and regularly inspecting vehicles.

“This commitment to safety provides users with peace of mind throughout their ride,” he added.

He further informed that TREEP Users can conveniently schedule rides up to two months in advance, and will receive a notification reminding them of their booking an hour to the scheduled pickup time.

In his remarks, Charles Uchenna, Business Development Manager, informed that users can save preferred drivers within the app, allowing for direct notification of their availability when booking future rides.

“Both drivers and riders can increase their earnings through frequent usage of the platform, creating a mutually beneficial incentive for continued engagement,” he added.

He said Treep implements a two-way rating system with incentives for both riders and drivers who receive a 5-star rating, promoting accountability and quality service.
