In an announcement that was made yesterday by both SafeBoda and MTN Uganda, customers will now have access to the SafeBoda App at Zero MBs.

In a Tweet, SafeBoda said,

You can now use the SafeBoda app with zero data! We are excited to announce that and MTN Uganda have partnered to give customers access to the app at zero MBs. Simply open your app and order for a ride with your frequent locations.

However, under the very partnership, SafeBoda will provide free rides worth UGX 5,000 that will be given out to MTN Pulsers every month based on MTN Pulse bundles that they activate

We’re aware that our MTN Pulsers move a lot on Boda Boda’s but do so with a lot of fear. With this partnership, we look forward to MTN Pulsers using SafeBoda – a safe means of transport to move with no fear. There is no fear in terms of safety since they can use helmets when riding and no fear of spending a lot on transport money as the service is affordable – Hellen Kirungi, Youth Segment Manager of MTN Uganda

While this remains a swift deal to both parties, all we’re not sure yet is whether MTN will allow SafeBoda to do the same with other telecommunication companies.
