Uber says it will offer 3,000 free leases to support the COVID-19 vaccination process in Kingston.
Uber says the effort is part of Uber’s global commitment to contributing 10 million free or discounted leases through the application so that people can use this mobility option to get vaccinated.
In a statement, the company noted that they do not want mobility to be a barrier for Jamaicans to get to vaccination centres. As such, solutions are provided through the Uber app available to support the vaccination process, providing citizens with a reliable alternative to get to and from vaccination centres.
Uber became available in Jamaica in June of this year. According to the company, since then the app has implemented safety measures to help prevent COVID-19, such as the mask verification during each lease.
