The Cameroonian market is witnessing a growing number of solutions developed by natives who are intent on creating local solutions for local problems. Almost every sector is concerned including the e-mobility sector. Last April, that sector notably welcomed Ongo, an urban and interurban transport app. Following in its wake, Klandoo was launched by a member of the diaspora who returned to Cameroon to contribute to the development of his native country. 

Klandoo is an e-mobility application developed by a Cameroonian start-up, recently launched to facilitate access to transport. 

True to the startup’s spirit, the application (available for Android and iOS devices) allows users to easily book rides. All they have to do is to create an account or log into an existing one, enter the departure and destination points then select the type of car they want. 

Klandoo will then suggest drivers close to the departure point along with an estimate of the fare to be paid. Once at their destination,  the application urges users to rate their experience and, drivers who receive the best ratings are included in users’ “favorite” lists. 

"All the cars’ technical inspection files are checked, assuring a perfect driving experience. In the event of a road accident or any kind of aggression, drivers and clients are taken care of by partner hospitals," explains Serge Itjo, the founder of Klandoo. Serge Itjo explains that Klandoo drivers are considered “partners” working for their own accounts. Klandoo nevertheless collects 20% of drivers’ proceeds. 

To ensure the security of both drivers and clients, Klandoo’s team tracks rides in real time. The startup is currently active in Douala, Yaoundé, and Kribi but it wants to conquer the whole Cameroonian market. According to Play Store data, the Android version of its app has already been downloaded more than a hundred times.
