While I’m busy wondering why Uber thrives in Lagos (and why it surprises me), the quintessential taxi hailing service is working really hard to make life easy for Lagosians who rely on it for their daily commute.
All the hard work has birth uberSELECT, a stylish and cheap way for riders to get around Lagos. Yes it is cheap…a little cheaper than UberBLACK but with almost the same quality!
uberSELECT caters to those who don’t mind sharing their rides but want to do so in style and for cheap too.
With uberSELECT, riders get to ride in newer car models and makes, share a ride with other passengers (4 max) and still get plenty of legroom.
Talking about newer cars, riders will get to ride in Kia Sportage, Audi, Volkswagen polo and other high quality and high-end cars.
“We know what it’s like to want to impress your friends or that special someone without having to spend a fortune. Whether you’re headed to the airport, a mid-day meeting, or date night, you deserve to ride in style,” said the Uber LAGOS Team.
For those who might still love to move around with UberX, Uber’s low cost option, cars such as Picanto, Kia rio and many more will continue to be available.
If you’re feeling excited already, you can quickly request UberSELECT and live the big boy life in the back seat of a high-end car (with some great peeps) without breaking the bank.
According to Uber’s General Manager for Nigeria, Ebi Atawodi, Uber is successful in Lagos because it is being adapted to suit Lagosians. The introduction of uberSELECT buttresses her assertions.
