Taxi Hailing Apps Comparison: Uber Vs Little

Little cab

Earlier today, we told you that Uber Kenya is adjusting its rates upwards giving in to the demands of its partner drivers. Uber reduced its rates last year to remain competitive and not lose customers to Safaricom-backed, Little.

Uber and Little have been in competition ever since Little got into Kenya with each one trying to convince us that it is the best. Little has been branding itself as a different option that is not just affordable but offers additional features you do not find on the other taxi hailing apps. Some of these include free Wi-Fi on board,  no price surges, live fare updates among others.

Uber on the other hand has been positioning itself as an affordable and reliable option. With that said, I thought it would be a good idea to compare the rates offered by the two taxi hailing apps considering the changes Uber has implemented today.

Below are the current Uber and Little rates.
