Free Uber rides for elections

Published

on

Uber taxi ride service will be providing free rides this coming Wednesday as it transports voters to and from their voting stations.

This coming election day, new and existing Uber users can enter the promotion code: VOTESA to redeem two free rides, each up to R200 in value. New users can sign up here.

This exciting campaign comes ten months after Uber first expanded into Africa, starting with its successful August 2013 launch in Johannesburg.

The Head of free in Africa and the Middle East, Jambu Palaniappan, says, “At free, we are incredibly passionate about helping people move around the cities that they live in. We have received a warm welcome in South Africa, and are very excited about current operations in Johannesburg, Cape Town, and Durban. On May 7th, we’d like to give back by making it easier for people to go out and vote. We’d also encourage all of our users to take an elderly friend or family member with them to the polls, so that everyone has their chance to be heard.
