Uber basks in phenomenal South Africa growth (Infographic)


On-demand driving service Uber has seen phenomenal growth since launching in South Africa in 2013.

The Silicon Valley startup has been taking the world by storm since 2011, but its growth in South Africa has been faster than many other countries. This is according to Regional General Manager of Uber in Sub-Saharan Africa, Alon Lits.

“In a short space of time, we’re doing tens of thousands of trips per day, with thousands of drivers on our system. South Africa is a really great example of Uber’s growth in a marketplace. In 2014 we helped facilitate more than one million trips and doubled that number in the first half of 2015,” says Lits.
