Zello, a shared transportation company, officially launched their services in South Africa, the company's first market outside of the UK.
Zeelo uses superior data analytics to provide mobility services to travellers that are undeserved and only have the option to drive.
The platform builds routes using a unique AI-powered algorithm, RINA (Route Integration Navigation Algorithm). This works by inputting customer data into RINA, the algorithm then plots out the data on a map and calculates the most effective and efficient routes for these customers.
Zeelo has integrated with more than 20,000 vehicles to provide commuting, event and private charter services. In South Africa, Zeelo has partnered with a number local of operators who supply the vehicles used to transport Zeelo passengers safely to their destination.
Zeelo offers a state-of-the-art online booking platform and technology which allows passengers to track their ride in real time.
Zeelo started life in South Africa as ‘The Rugga Bus’, a service transporting Cell C Sharks fans to and from Jonsson Kings Park on match days. The bus was founded and managed by two Durban locals, Andrew Robarts and James Champion, before news of the idea spread to London, where Zeelo Co-Founders, Sam Ryan and Barney Williams, became interested in the idea.
The teams struck a deal and Zeelo SA was launched. Zeelo now provides services to major sporting events, concerts and festivals across South Africa.
Zeelo's first corporate commute offering got underway in July 2019, where the company provided shuttles for employees working in 3 corporate offices in Sandton from the Sandton Gautrain Station.
