TechInAfrica – The ride-hailing taxi Uber South Africa shared on its official website (4 June) that all of its operations in the country now have UberGo as an alternative for a cheaper cost.
It says, ‘Uber Go comes with smaller, fuel-efficient vehicles, with fares priced more affordably than before’.
The option does not deduce the standard safety of the company, such as in-app emergency button, Injury Protection, driver’s screening, and 24/7 access to customer service, which will remain in the low-cost option.

It has also recently gifted 100,000 free rides for school staff and teachers to get vaccinated in the 281 designated sites in Kwazulu-Natal in an initiative to support the government’s program of 582,000 injected vaccines.
