Uber, the US-based ride-hailing service company has refined its strategies to enhance its services in Nigeria and Egypt with the implementation of bus service.
The operating logic implies that the rider base can conserve time by waiting for their cab in a fixed location and are dropped off anywhere with respect to the fixed route which the bus us taking.
Uber is present for service in the cities of Lagos and Cairo from Nigeria and Egypt respectively.
This ambitious proposal was developed to close the void which would be generated if the Lagos State Government ceases commuter buses from plying in the city.

An additional official statement from Uber’s Egyptian base noted that the region features over 90 million people which are plagued by traffic jams. The innovative proposal of Uber serves effectively in dealing with commuters numbering in about 5.2 million This is seen as several of the buses need immediate services and repairs all stemming from a train crash which happened recently costing the lives of 37 people. The nation accounted for over 14,500 crashes alone 2 years back.
Further noted was that the launch of this service will pave the way for a new era of additional and widespread expansion of Uber on the African continent. In the even the rollout is an astounding success in Egypt then it will pave way for Uber to get accustomed with other densely populated regions of Africa where the quality of public transport is very much poor.
