Easy Taxi And Hashi Energy Partnership

To benefit Taxi drivers and customers in the city

Easy Taxi and Hashi Energy are working together to create Kenya’s first loyalty card program for taxi drivers. Under this new partnership, all Easy Taxi drivers are now eligible for a Hashi Energy rewards card which offers them discounts off fuel, parts, and servicing. Only taxi drivers who are registered and in good standing with Easy Taxi may participate in this special offer.

MD of Easy Taxi, Peng Chen, shared, “We’re excited to work with Hashi Energy, one of East Africa’s leading oil and gas companies, to provide rewards and benefits for our partner taxi drivers. Not only do our partner drivers have access to more customers, better safety, and more convenient rides, but now they’ll be rewarded for fueling up with Hashi as well. One of our major goals here is to empower taxi drivers in Nairobi and this certainly helps us achieve that.”

CEO of Hashi Energy, Dr. Mohamed Adan, says, “This is just the beginning and a great relationship between Easy Taxi and Hashi Energy and we very much look forward to working together closely in the future.”
