Uber the popular ride-hailing service has officially launched in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania marking its entry into its ninth African country and fourteenth city on the continent.


In March this year, it was reported that Uber had committed to an expansion across Africa marked with launches in three cities in Ghana, Uganda, and Tanzania.

Today’s launch in Tanzania’s largest city marks the completion of that drive. The service has already launched in Kampala (Uganda) and Accra (Ghana). Uber launched in all these cities this month.


Tanzania, like the other markets that Uber has explored, has a sizable population (51,8 million) and a growing economy where commercial activity in cities like Dar es Salaam is expected to benefit from transport services like Uber that provide a lot of convenience with their ease of use.
