US-based mobility and urban services platform, inDrive, has secured its position as the world’s second most downloaded ride-hailing app for the second consecutive year, according to research firm, data.ai.
The ride-hailing platform, operating across 46 countries globally, including 9 in Africa, also ranked as the fourth most downloaded application worldwide in the Travel category.
Data.ai reported that in 2023, inDrive’s app recorded a staggering 66.6 million downloads on Google Play and the App Store, with China contributing through the iOS platform exclusively.
In addition to being the second most downloaded ride-hailing app globally, inDrive also secured the top spot in 13 countries, with a combined population exceeding 559 million in 2023. Notable among these countries are Pakistan, Colombia, Egypt, Peru, and Morocco.
inDrive’s success can be attributed to its continuous expansion and addition of new services, such as finance, freight, and courier delivery. The company has extended its core ridesharing offering to new geographies, launching in more than 8 cities across Africa and two in the US region over the past year. inDrive has also gained regulatory approval to introduce electric motorcycles to its fleet in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region.
Arsen Tomsky, the founder and CEO of inDrive, expressed his delight at the achievement, stating, “we are delighted that inDrive has maintained its position as the second most downloaded ride-hailing app globally, a testament to the incredible efforts of our team and the trust our users place in us.”
inDrive’s growth is not solely based on numbers but is deeply rooted in its mission to offer reliable and affordable services. The company leverages a unique peer-to-peer pricing model to address the lack of affordable transportation options and limited earning opportunities, particularly in underserved communities.
Tomsky spoke on the company’s commitment to creating meaningful earning opportunities and providing reliable mobility services at fair prices. He noted, “as we celebrate this milestone, we remember that we measure inDrive’s success not simply by the number of downloads but by the wider impact we make on our communities and on the world at large.”
The inDrive app, with over 200 million downloads to date, continues to offer a comprehensive range of urban services, including intercity transportation, freight delivery, task assistance, courier delivery, and employment search.
The platform supports local communities through its peer-to-peer pricing model and community empowerment programs, advancing education, sports, arts and sciences, gender equality, and other vital initiatives. With a commitment to challenging injustice and making a positive impact, inDrive remains a prominent player in the global mobility and urban services landscape.
