Uber Boat is the new hailing service/option of the future succeeding the much-hyped UBER Air service that tasted success last year in Uganda, Kenya, and several other countries.
Uber Boat as the name sounds is a hailing option offered by ride-hailing giant UBER as part of its new services docket. The service has so far been launched in Nigeria and has garnered huge success in the region
Just like any other service on the UBER App, Uber Boat pops up as an option with available pickups when you draw closer to a waterbody. At the moment, only Lagos dwellers can use the service to maneuver traffic with an active 50% discount on all trips taken.
The UberBoat trip rates
|Base Rate /Flat Charge||N500 (Approx $1.39)|
|Cost Per Minute||N/A|
|Cost per KM||N/A|
Contrary to the regular UBER trip rates, the new UBER Boat service has a flat charge as its base payment clocking at 500 Nairas (Approximately $1.39) in Lagos. However, this is expected to change as the service rolls out to more areas.
As per UBER’s rollout plans, the service will be launched to more countries if at all demand and resources meet its target cap before UBER Air gets back to the equation table.
