Uber will give free rides to Tigo subscribers to drive the taxi hailing app’s uptake in Tanzania.
The first of its kind partnership will be beneficial to existing Uber riders and driver-partners and encourage more riders to use the Uber app.
On his part Alfred Msemo, Country Manager at Uber said, “We are excited about our partnership with Tigo in Tanzania which will enable all riders and driver-partners who have Tigo lines to use the Uber app on their mobile phones free of charge with no data costs.”
The two companies will be working together on products and promotions that aim to add value both to the existing and potential clients. Tigo and Uber in Tanzania will soon announce more exciting offers to enable customers to interact with Uber in Dar es Salaam where Uber services are currently available.
