Ringing in 2017 in Kampala

January 3, 2017 / Uganda

Happy New Year, Kampala!

After several New Year’s Eves under our belt, we’ve learned that millions of people in cities around the world rely on Uber for a safe, reliable ride to and from their celebrations. This year, we wanted to spotlight how riders in Kampala used Uber when ringing in the New Year. Check out these 5 fun facts!

Sometimes one celebration isn’t enough! The biggest party hopper took 4 rides throughout the evening.

Don’t be late to the party! 53 riders arrived just in time to ring in the New Year, getting out of their Ubers within 9 minutes of midnight.

Share the ride and the cost! 33 riders used our split fare feature when heading to and from their celebrations!


Many affordable rides. Over 70% of rides were at normal price.

Thank you to the over 500 drivers who moved Kampala safely, and to the riders who let us be part of their evening. Here’s to 2017: we hope you’ll join us again for the ride.
