Are you ready for April, GoMetropolitans?

Get ready for flx

GoMetro is geared up and excited to launch GoMetro flx, our new ridesharing mobility solution, with the people of Cape Town […]

Why flexible mobility is awesome for the planet

Don’t get budget blues – get mobile

One of the most nerve-wracking days of the year is almost upon us – no, not Valentine’s. The 21st of February, which is when current Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba will deliver his first budget speech to the people of South Africa.

The things that really matter

February is the month of love, and there’s nothing like love in the air to make you think about what really matters. At GoMetro, we’re excited about trends as much as the next startup, but there are some things that matter no matter what month it is. When trends come to meet the important […]
