Taxi app Uber is giving customers discounts on rides to and from polling stations on election day in South Africa, on Wednesday 3 August.
Uber SA says it encourages all South Africans to go out and vote. It will therefore provide riders in Johannesburg, Ekurhuleni, Pretoria, Cape Town, Durban, Port Elizabeth, R30 off all rides to and from polling stations.
Here’s how you can get a discounted ride:
- Open the Uber app and enter the promo code VOTESA in the Promotions tab
- When you’re ready to get voting, request a ride
- Get up to R30 off your trip to your voting station and up to R30 home afterwards
