“We are excited to announce that UberGo, a low-cost product available in Port Elizabeth since 2017, has become a permanent option across South Africa. This is in addition to the current suite of products such as UberX and UberBlack. We have therefore decided to change the name of UberNam to UberGo, to follow Uber global standards.
UberGo comes with smaller, fuel-efficient vehicles, with fares priced more affordable than before. Riders and drivers can expect the same door-to-door safety features such as an in-app emergency button, Injury Protection, 24/7 support, including driver background checks and screenings.
We remain committed to delivering more affordable options with the same safety standards while unlocking further earning opportunities for driver-partners across South Africa.” – Uber spokesperson
