Tigo Partners With Uber to Offer Free Rides in Tanzania

Tigo Tanzania has entered into a partnership with Uber which will allow all Tigo customers to use the Uber app for free.

The partnership is the first of its kind, and will be beneficial to existing Uber riders and driver-partners and encourage more riders to use the Uber app.

“Tigo is a robust brand in the Tanzanian market and we have a vested stake in introducing more efficient ways for customers to engage with the world around them. Uber is a strong addition to the growing range of products and services that our customers can enjoy in their daily lives,” Tigo’s Managing Director Simon Karikari said.

Alfred Msemo, Country Manager at Uber, said: “Uber’s mission and vision is to offer safe, reliable and affordable transportation to everyone, everywhere. This partnership will encourage thousands of residents in Dar es Salaam who are Tigo customers to use the Uber app to move around Dar es Salaam.’

The two companies will be working together on products and promotions that aim to add value both to the existing and potential clients. Tigo and Uber in Tanzania will soon announce more offers to enable customers to interact with Uber in Dar es Salaam where Uber services are currently available.
