Following Uber’s recent partnership with Germaine Auto Centre – a Nigerian based auto service and maintenance company which enables driver-partners operating in Lagos to enjoy top quality vehicle maintenance and servicing, Uber has announced the opening of its Greenlight Hub in Lagos.
In the light is seemingly expected competition from Taxify, Oga Taxi, Pam Drive, and to remain the most preferred, Uber has opened a support centre at Maryland Mall in Maryland, Lagos. which will serve as a resource centre where existing and potential driver-partners can receive support for app-related inquiries.
This follows the same pattern Uber operates in other countries around the world.
The Greenlight Hub will be open Monday through Thursday, from 9am – 4pm, Friday, from 9am – 3pm and on Saturday, from 11am – 4pm, excluding public holidays.
Speaking at the launch event, Alon Lits, General Manager for Uber, Sub-Saharan Africa said, “The Greenlight Hub is a support centre that provides driver-partners with established channels of communication to raise individual questions and concerns that they may have. We’ve always had partner support centres, but not at the level of the Greenlight Hub, where potential and existing driver-partners can have their concerns and inquiries addressed by our dedicated and professional team.”
Uber, through Taryn Morris, Head of Greenlight for SSA, reaffirmed its commitment to supporting driver-partners as the Hub is said to be a world-class, technologically advanced place for drivers to get on-boarded and obtain customer support.
As a way of recognizing exceptional driver-partners, Uber also presented prizes to Usman Oboshi, Remi Afolabi and Edwin Obi – driver-partners with the best rating and longest partnership with Uber. Prizes were also presented to Blessing Onu, driver-partner said to be the longest female partner- driver with Uber and Iwa Airiohuodion, female driver-partner said to have the best rating.
