From April 21 to 23 first-time users given free motorbike taxi trips.
Uber introduced uberMOTO in Vietnam on April 20, with fares of VND3,700 ($0.16) per kilometer and only VND200 ($0.008) per minute for travel by motorbike taxi (xe om). The minimum fare is VND10,000 ($0.44).
To celebrate the launch of uberMOTO Uber is giving away free trips to first-time users. From April 21 to 23 simply type in the “uberMOTO” promotional code in the promotions option to receive five free trips worth up to VND88,000 ($3.94) per trip.
“We are also making it easy to pay with cash or credit card, which makes Uber more accessible to more potential riders and drivers in Vietnam,” said Mr. Dang Viet Dung, General Manager of Uber Vietnam.
“Whether you are behind the wheel or on the back of a motorbike, Uber is for everyone. uberMOTO is a great way to help millions of people gain access to the most affordable, comfortable and convenient transportation in town to get around Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi with a little help from technology.”
uberMOTO provides the same high quality Uber experience for a lower fare, so riders have more choice and no need to haggle over price, no more dirty helmets, and cleaner bikes, while drivers in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi have a new way to cover the cost of their trips by sharing the journey.
According to the Ministry of Transport (MoT), Vietnam has one of the highest motorbike ratios in the world, so its Decision No. 356.QD-TTg aims to limit individual ownership in an effort to reduce the number of bikes on the road and that’s where uberMOTO can be part of the solution.
