CAPE TOWN - Uber has decided to increase its minimum fare charge across the country.
Uber said on Tuesday that the minimum fare for UberX rides will increase from R20 to R25.
The new charges took place from the 31st of July.
However, there is some good news for some Uber users. Uber said that the minimum fare of R20 will still apply to all trips starting in Soweto in Johannesburg.
The company said that people in Port Elizabeth who use uberGO will now pay a minimum fare of R20, up from the previous R17.
