Remember how we told you yesterday about Taxify’s price reduction, and how we were certain Uber was going to do the same just to get at Taxify? Well, well, e don happen!
Yes, today, Uber announced that their price will be slashed by 40% and that reduction will be in effect from today.
|Old uberX||New uberX|
|Magodo to Gbagada||From N1,100||From N600|
|Yaba to Ilupeju||From N1,300||From N800|
|Surulere to Ikeja||From N2,000||From N1,200|
Uber says their reason for this is “Decreasing the fares should get more people requesting more rides with Uber, which leads to drivers spending more time with paying riders and standing a chance to earn the same or more!” But we all know it’s because they are trying to beat Taxify…*eyes rolling*
Well, for this hot competition, let’s all relax and see who gets the prize.
