Press Release

May 25, 2021, 3:10 p.m.

After successful launches in Nigeria and South Africa, Uber has extended their partnership with Moove, Uber’s preferred fleet partner in Sub-Saharan Africa, to provide potential and current Uber drivers in Ghana with long-term access to vehicles. The largest partnership of its kind, the collaboration aims to lower existing barriers to car ownership on the continent and empower drivers to be their boss within a shorter time frame.

Drivers on the Uber platform now have access to brand new Volkswagen Polo among other models for either Flexi Car Weekly Rental or Drive to Own deals, including zero deposit, free maintenance, fuel, and smartphone allowance as well as free insurance.

Moove’s partnership with Uber will introduce low-barrier entry methods into the Uber app by offering improved pricing models for car ownership through solutions such as flexible rental and drive-to-own options while providing riders with access to newer car models when they request a ride.

As we recover, we know we need to continue to offer drivers quality, compact, and cost-efficient vehicle choices that will better help economically to boost their weekly earning, with the same Uber experience and door-to-door safety experience. We are excited to extend our partnership with Moove to make this a reality,” says Jessica Poku, Country Manager for Uber Ghana.

The multiple ownership methods are designed to suit drivers with diverse budgets and goals, allowing Uber drivers who were previously unable to afford or finance their vehicle to become their boss.

For instance, the flexi-rental option provides short-term vehicle access that spans between one to four weeks, while drive-to-own options are available to drivers with 24, 36, and 48-month agreements respectively.

Speaking on the partnership, Moove Ghana’s Country Manager, Mr. Jephthah Datsomor, said: “We have been working with Uber to develop strategies to help drivers manage their financial operating costs. We are excited to support drivers across Africa, including Ghana, to grow their businesses and improve their livelihoods within a shorter time frame, especially as mobility returns to cities across the continent.”

This collaboration reaffirms Uber’s commitment to Ghana and Africa as a whole, by providing enhanced earning potential and better mobility for all.

All Uber’s products carry the same door-to-door safety features as any other Uber option such as an in-app emergency button, Injury Protection, 24/7 support, including driver background checks and screenings.
