‘Tech­nol­ogy, key el­e­ment in cre­at­ing sus­tain­able en­vi­ron­ment’

Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - From Risikat Ra­moni, La­gos

The Gen­eral Man­ager for Uber, SubSa­ha­ran Africa, Alon Lits, has said tech­nol­ogy is a cru­cial el­e­ment in cre­at­ing a so­ci­ety that is more ef­fi­cient and sus­tain­able.

He said Uber’s fo­cus was on how the com­pany could cut con­ges­tion, pol­lu­tion, and park­ing, as well as pro­vide ac­cess to seam­less trans­porta­tion, by us­ing pri­vate cars for pub­lic good and also us­ing new tech­nol­ogy and to­day’s in­fra­struc­ture.

Alon, in a state­ment, said, “In La­gos for ex­am­ple, Tech­nol­ogy and col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the pri­vate and pub­lic sec­tor is vi­tal in build­ing trans­port sys­tems that work. We are pleased with the plans of La­gos State Gov­er­nor, Mr. Ak­in­wunmi Am­bode to re­struc­ture pub­lic trans­porta­tion in the State. With these sort of plans in place it means that there will be less con­ges­tion, in­creased pro­duc­tiv­ity and more ef­fi­cient modes of mo­bil­ity”.
