How does Bolt driver work?

Bolt is a ride-sharing business. The money made is shared between Bolt company and the driver at an agreed percentage. Bolt drivers work using the Bolt driver App. Please note that the Bolt driver app is only for drivers and it’s different from Bolt Riders App which is for only riders (passengers). Bold driver work by switching on their Bolt driver app and going online. Once they swipe to go online, riders close to their location can find them when they request a ride. When Bold riders request for a ride, they fill in their destination in the Bolt app, view fare estimate, and a driver is automatically matched to them. Simultaneously, Bolt drivers receive a ride request via your Bolt driver app, then pick up the client and drive to the rider’s destination. If the ride happens, the rider has the option to pay the money via the app or cash.


Making good money on Bolt will depend on how well you manage your time and the tool available to you. Here are some tips to get you going

  • Figure out the peak time when people need frequently request for rides and stay online at that period.
  • Don’t be rude. If you don’t relate well with people, you won’t get a nice rating and a rating below 4.6 will get your blocked form the app (I’m sure you wouldn’t want that)
  • Be on the lookout for updates and social info on popular gathering spots
  • Don’t be too picky. Try to accept all orders.
  • Make sure the Back-to-Back rides option is turned on. Why? The more rides you get, the extra money you create.
  • Take periodic breaks to get you fresh for your orders
  • Please don’t drive like a maniac for your safety and others
