Lagos has become a sprawling megacity, and, as with all megacities across the world, it is characterized by rapidly growing urbanization and its attendant increase in population. Transportation and the concomitant increase in traffic are some of the challenges the city is facing. Gokada, an on-demand transportation company or motorbike hailing service headquartered in Lagos, Nigeria, is working to solve the problem. The startup’s customers can order a motorbike ride through the company's website, or by using the company's geo-location -based smartphone Gokada mobile app. The Gokada mobile app provides commuters access to hail motorcycles and take safe and affordable rides to any part of Lagos. The app is currently available and can be used on both Android and iOS devices. The startup got funding from CRE Venture Capital as well as Adventure Capital.
