Lastly, by carpooling through MyCoPilot, users actively contribute to reducing traffic congestion and minimising their carbon footprint, positively impacting the environment while reducing the cost of their trips.

Safety! Safety! Safety!

The MyCoPilot Team understands the precarious security challenges plaguing Nigerian roads, therefore they prioritize the safety and security of their users. In this light, they’ve taken a deep dive to ensure everyone goes through a thorough high-level but easy security verification, using government-issued IDs, utility bills or bank statements (for address verification), and live facial recognition/capture. To cap it, the trip is tracked end to end so they can intervene in the case of an emergency. The app also offers an emergency dial feature that allows users to communicate with emergency services and coordinate any emergency incident. Furthermore, MyCoPilot encourages users to provide feedback and rate their experiences, promoting transparency and accountability within the community.

Funding & Growth

MyCoPilot has experienced significant growth and has received some investment from an undisclosed angel investor. The app has successfully scaled off the founder’s resources and early angel investment, enhancing its technology, expanding its services, and providing an even better experience for its users.
