When you want to quickly beat Kampala’s Jam, you need a Boda boda not data bundles. That’s why Safeboda has teamed up with MTN Uganda to offer you their app completely without internet.
Today, Safeboda has announced on their Twitter account that you can simply hail a ride through their app without data. This of course will only work for users on the MTN network for now.
You can now use the SafeBoda app with zero data!
Simply open your app and order for a ride with your frequent locations. pic.twitter.com/aXSz8r9tru

Safeboda wants to cement its position as the leading Boda boda hailing service in Uganda at a time when both Taxify and Uber added Boda feature to their app. The company is also rumoured to be expanding to Kenya after raising another round of seed funding from investors.
