Uber is committed to offering an affordable and convenient option for Nigerians to move around and as of 4 December 2017, Uber will be dropping rates in Lagos by 25%. This means that not only will riders pay less for their trips but driver-partners will earn more through increased demand.
This was disclosed by the management yesterday and made available to Brand Spur Nigeria. In its statement, the management said, “We want your Naira to take you further this holiday season”
Riders can expect the same quality experience at a more affordable price and driver-partners should also earn the same, if not more through increased rider demand. Fare reductions are designed to help drivers by boosting demand so more people are requesting more rides through Uber, meaning drivers will spend more time with paying riders in the back seat and less time sitting idly waiting for a request.
The promotion will be auto applied to rider’s account. The promotion value is 25% off 2 trips, up to the value of N1,000 per trip. This promotion is valid from 4 December 2017 to 17 December 2017.
Since Uber’s launch in Lagos in 2014 and in Abuja in March 2015, Uber has enabled over 1000 economic opportunities. Every day, thousands of Nigerians use Uber to get across Lagos and Abuja.
The response to Uber in Nigeria has been amazing and Uber is committed to providing a service that benefits both riders and driver-partners. Price cuts boost demand so more people are requesting more rides with Uber, meaning drivers will spend more time with riders in the back seat and less time sitting idly waiting for a request.
