Lagos state, with an estimated population of 22 million, is notorious for congested roads. Commuters are known to spend long hours on the road.
The UberBOAT service is designed as a strategy to decongest the roads in Lagos. 25% of its landmass consists of water bodies. This makes commuting a very viable alternative to help its residents beat the constant traffic that plagues them while commuting.
UberBOAT launch in Nigeria is the second recipient of the boat service in Africa, following Egypt where it was launched in 2017, and one of the earliest in the world after Mumbai in India and Croatia.
