As of July 31, the minimum fare charged per UberX ride has increased from R20 to R25.
Uber said: “Even with this small increase, Uber remains one of the most affordable and efficient ways to get around your city. You will still enjoy the reliable service you have come to expect from us.
“As more drivers look to Uber as an earning opportunity, this small increase will still make it possible for riders to access affordable transport while providing profitable earnings for driver-partners.”
However, Uber drivers seemed unaffected by this increase. As it stands, Uber charges a commission of 25%.
