Giving Back To Customers: SafeBoda Announces 50% Discount On All Rides In New Promotion

Giving Back To Customers: SafeBoda Announces 50% Discount On All Rides In New Promotion

Safeboda Riders

One of the leading and pioneer raiding Apps SafeBoda has launched a new promotion that offers 50 percent off rides for both cash and cashless rides for their customers.

According to SafeBoda Co-founder Ricky Rapa Thomson, the new discount offers customers a more convenient option for their trips while improving their experience with the app.

“Since its launch in 2015, SafeBoda has grown from a small Ugandan ride-hailing start-up to an African super app empowering over 1 million customers and over 20,000 SafeBodas in Kampala, Uganda, and Ibadan, Nigeria.”

Ricky Thomson said that the 50 percent-off rides offer aims at increasing the daily earnings and rides for SafeBoda drivers and to appreciate customers for their continued support for the past 6 years. It comes at a time when the app just celebrated its 6th Anniversary.

“We believe the offer should encourage more people to join the SafeBoda community for a convenient boda-boda experience,” Thomson said.

Thomson added that customers will also stand a chance to win exciting giveaways in the campaign period. These include TVs, Laptops, MiFi, Speakers, and more when they take and share a ride on social media.

According to Thomson, the offer will run from Monday 3rd May to Friday 7th May, and will thereafter be followed by a 30% OFF RIDES for the rest of the month. More information on the 50% OFF offer can be found on the SafeBoda Twitter and Facebook pages or visit
