Uber has said it is readying two new services for the Nigerian market.
Uber Connect and Uber Hourly will be available in Nigeria in the “next few months,” the company said at the Go Get global consumer event at the event of last month.
“We want to bring innovations designed to help people get anywhere and get anything as cities start to move again,” Tope Akinwumi, Uber’s country manager, said in an emailed statement on Tuesday.
“As we want to show our commitment to improving the lives of Nigerians, and more importantly, unlocking access to earning opportunities for drivers, we believe this announcement is a step in the right direction.”
Uber Hourly is an alternative to on-demand, point-to-point trips that will provide riders added convenience with no need to re-book their ride.
