Uber has launched a 24/7 phone support for users across Kenya 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
To call, users simply need to tap ‘Help’ in the main menu of the Uber app and select the ‘Call’ option to be connected to Uber’s support team.
Riders can also contact the Uber support team through in-app messaging or visit help.uber.com for frequently asked questions. In an emergency, users should still call the local emergency line (999 112 911) or use the Uber in-app emergency button which connects to Uber’s third-party security providers.
The new 24/7 phone line for riders and drivers follows a number of significant changes that Uber has announced to better support users of the app including:
- Partner Injury Protection – In the unfortunate event of an accident On-Trip, drivers and delivery-partners will be covered on the road
- Driving Hour Limits – a feature to prevent drowsy driving. This feature prompts drivers to go offline for six straight hours from the app after a total of 12 hours of driving time
- New Driver App – We stripped away all the complexity to create an entirely new experience designed to support drivers on every moment of their journey in ways that meet their needs
- Safety Toolkit -New innovative features which include Trusted Contacts (riders), Speed Alerts (driver), In-App Emergency Button (riders + drivers)
- Rider Injury Protection – Riders are covered in the unfortunate event of death or disability On-Trip. We extended the cover to now include a contribution towards loss or damage to your personal possessions
