Attendees of the inaugural edition of Yudala Zero Gravity, a multi-city digital entertainment concert powered by pioneer composite e-commerce outfit, Yudala, are in for better experience, as the company has partnered leading taxi service provider Uber to offer free rides for first time Uber riders to the concert venue.

Yudala Zero Gravity begins on Sunday October 2 at the Landmark Event Centre from 3.00 p.m.
By using the code – YUDALAZEROGRAVITY, every interested first time Uber riders can enjoy a free ride of up to N2,500 to the venue of the concert. To enjoy the offer, the individual would have to download and install the Uber app on a smartphone and then apply the YUDALAZEROGRAVITY code when submitting the trip request.

Arrangements have been concluded to accommodate existing Uber riders customers making their way to the concert venue with special discount packages.

Headquartered in San Francisco – California, Uber Technologies Inc. is an American multinational online transportation network company. It develops, markets and operates the Uber mobile app, which allows consumers with smartphones to submit a trip request, which the software program then automatically sends to the Uber driver nearest to the consumer, alerting the driver to the location of the customer.

As of August 2016, the service was available in over 66 countries and 507 cities worldwide. The Uber app automatically calculates the fare and transfers the payment to the driver. Since Uber’s launch, several other companies have replicated its business model although not as successfully as Uber.

Currently offering its service in Lagos and Abuja with plans of expanding to other major Nigerian cities in the near future, Uber has quickly become the preferred taxi service for many, with its emphasis on safety, quality of the vehicles and professional drivers endearing the brand to Nigerians.

Yudala Zero Gravity is a three-city dual entertainment event which will feature a contemporary music blast as well as a rock gospel concert in Lagos, Abuja and Enugu.
