How it all started

In 2015, as a group of friends (Gervasius, Heinrich, Jonas, Leroy, Lamech, and Abrie), registered for a hackathon to solve issues around payments for public transport in Namibia. The result was, "E-cab" - a cashless payment solution for taxis.

After knocking at some doors, looking for investors without success. It hit us that, we needed to expand the idea and a different funding model. That's when Tomas came on board and a joint venture, Intercity was born. Over the next 3 years, the co-founders, Logic Plus Information Technologies and Nepat Trading took this simple idea and built it into Namibia’s leading carpooling platform, connecting thousands of people going the same way.

Intercity today

Intercity is Namibia's leading mid and long-distance carpooling platform – a national, trusted community of over 26 thousands drivers and passengers. Through a mobile application, the platform connects people looking to travel long distances with drivers heading the same way, so they can travel together and share the cost. Intercity aims to become the go-to marketplace for shared road mobility in Africa. Affordable, convenient and user-friendly. Let's Go. Together.
