Uber’s discounted rides on Voting Day

By Alina Hardcastle

This Voting Day (3 August 2016), UberSA is encouraging all South Africans to go out and vote, by offering customers discounted rides to and from polling stations.

UberSA announced: “The #2016MunicipalElections give South Africans an opportunity to make a mark that influences their future. Your vote is your voice!”

How it works:

  • Open the Uber app and enter the promo code, VOTESA, in the promotion tab.
  • When you’re ready to get voting, request your ride.
  • Get up R30 off your trip to your voting station and up to R30 when heading back home afterwards.


The fine print:

  • Riders must enter the code VOTESA to get up to R30 off their next two rides
  • The promotion is open to both new and existing Uber riders in Johannesburg, Ekurhuleni, Pretoria, Cape Town, Durban and Port Elizabeth.
  • The code will apply between 7:00 and 21:00 on Wednesday, 3 August 2016.
