In 2021, Beninese entrepreneur Raynald Ballo launched RMobility, a carpooling service modeled after the French company Blablacar. Recently, the company has expanded its offerings to include a ride-hailing service, providing cars with drivers (VTC).

On June 7, Beninese ride-sharing app RMobility launched a new ride-hailing service offering cars with drivers (VTC). This announcement was made during a press conference organized by the company.

"We believe that mobility should be accessible, safe, and convenient for everyone. By launching a VTC service, we aim to offer a more flexible and efficient solution […] as we have observed a growing demand for modern and reliable transport options," said Raynald Ballo, founder of RMobility.

The company has deployed a fleet of about fifty vehicles to compete in the increasingly competitive VTC market in Benin. To attract users, RMobility has enhanced its offerings by allowing customers to book bus tickets and event tickets through its app, in addition to carpooling and VTC services.

To promote these services, RMobility relies on its app and digital tools. According to the company's founder, these tools have already helped RMobility attract 20,000 users.
