KAMPALA, (CAJ News) – UGANDA has joined Uber’s growing African network with the launch of the innovative technology platform in Kampala.

Alon Lits, General Manager for Uber Sub-Saharan Africa, said the firm was excited to be launching in a town he lauded as a world-class African city.

“We are inspired by the city’s rapidly developing infrastructure and spirit of entrepreneurship and look forward to giving people in the city an affordable, easy and flexible choice to move around the city safely and reliably.”

Lits said Uber was proud to connect millions of global citizens every to affordable and reliable rides.

“By offering a friendly and reliable complement to existing transport options, we can help improve urban mobility in Kampala. We are mindful of the city’s current traffic congestion, and we aim to be part of the solution in improving it, while creating new, fruitful opportunities for drivers.”

Ultimately, Uber hopes to reduce the strain on the city’s roads, and minimise the environmental impact of traffic congestion.

“That is part of a growing economy,” said Lits.
