UBER, Suzuki sign MoU to expand Uber Chap Chap

Uber CHAP CHAP fuel-efficient option of Suzuki Alto 800s vehicle

NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 31 – Uber and Suzuki Motors have signed a memorandum of understanding to expand presence of Uber CHAP CHAP across the continent.

The MoU follows the launch of Uber CHAP CHAP in Kenya 10 months ago, a fuel-efficient option of Suzuki Alto 800 vehicle.

Uber Middle East and Africa General Manager Anthony le Roux says the agreement is evidence that the two companies consider each other as preferred partners, even as they work towards the common goal of increasing business efficiencies across Africa.

“The MoU is a fantastic first step for not just Kenyans but for the rest of Africa, as it shows the critical role this type of partnerships will play in creating much needed economic opportunities while offering people across Africa a flexible choice to move around the city safely, reliably and affordably,” Roux said.

Uber CHAP CHAP will first be expanded across the East African region soon, before it is expanded elsewhere across Sub-Saharan Africa.

The service was launched earlier this year in Nairobi as a pilot and there are there are over 500 such vehicles in Kenya today.
