Uber Kenya has expanded its presence to five more towns across the country now in Eldoret, Naivasha, Elementaita, and Gilgil.

Uber is stepping up its cab-hailing services in Kenya with plans to expand into different towns.

The cab-hailing company says the operations will be available in Eldoret, Naivasha, Elementaita, and Gilgil.

“We have soft-launched the cities and will go as the product becomes more developed. We see the potential in these cities and are confident they will grow and become very reliable for us,” said Uber head of East Africa, Imran Manji.

Uber currently serves Nairobi, Thika, Mombasa and Nakuru, where it started operations in 2021. The car ride categories include Uber X, Uber Select, Uber Chapchap, Uber Boda, and Uber Poa. 

With the expanded cities, Manji says rates will depend on the cities.

“Each city will be managed separately because the cost of living and affordability is different. Not all products available in Nairobi will be found in those cities,” Manji explains.

Other ridesharing taxi companies in Kenya include Little Cab, Wasili, Bolt and Swvl.
