Uber Technologies is a technology platform that operates in over 220 cities in more than 45 countries. Uber, as most commonly referred, was officially launched in Lagos on July 23, 2014.
Through the use of a smartphone application, Uber allows people to quickly and easily find a ride with a licensed private driver. All driver partners using the application are strictly vetted by Uber – but are independent. Uber’s role is simply to help one find the other.
At the tap of a button, a customer can arrange speedy, reliable, safe and stylish transportation. Uber’s software does not replace traditional taxis but rather, complement them, providing a different kind of service. A typical use of Uber might include a business traveler going from a hotel to a meeting; or revelers who don’t want to deal with parking and traffic.
Easy-to-use ordering system: Whenever a rider wants a driver they simply press a button on their smart phone and a request is sent through the platform to the nearest available driver.
Transparent pricing: Fares are published on Uber’s website and riders can receive a quote within seconds of putting in their destination within the app.
Quick, convenient payments: Uber is cashless. Customers provide their payment details after downloading the app and payment is taken automatically at the end of each completed trip.
