Safeboda expands beyond Kampala – here are the new coverage areas

The issue of travelling on a budget in Kampala was a debate never addressed until Taxify boda and Uber boda teased a drop of tight competition to Safeboda provoking an ultimate price slash riders have enjoyed with a 50% off tagline. Even when, Safeboda had relatively high rates on short distances and comfortably low on long stretched trips, it’s availability zone has always been limited to Kampala. But after the camp’s very first driver closed off his last 50 trips, the effect has chattered new availability zones beyond Kampala

Unlike the previous situations where requesting for a Safeboda pick up outside Kampala was more of a zoned out daymare. This could be a long gone story with areas like Kyengera, Gayaza, Ssetta on the accessibility map. Nevetherless, here is the full list of the new coverage zone areas

  • Kawanda
  • Kasangati
  • Bulindo
  • Ssonde
  • Seeta
  • Luzira
  • Kawuku (Makindye division)
  • Munyonyo
  • Ggaba
  • Kajjansi
  • Kasenge

Last month, Dial Jack triggered a new free rides for everyone campaign garnering new support against the rest of the 3 rivals. But the story with Safeboda’s Kampala crossover is more of a come back against the competitors allowing each and every rider in Kampala to request for a nearby driver and yet another chance to taste the favorably discounted Safeboda credit. Well, the competition between Taxify boda, uber boda, Safeboda, Dial Jack and the newly unveiled Pikime continues to garner new heights further making travelling in Kampala cheaper and cheaper everyday
