I can count the number of times I’ve seen UberBLACK cars since I started using the transport network service. Now, they’ve killed it off and switched up the options available to riders in Nigeria. UberSELECT is the phoenix arising from the ashes of UberBLACK. It’s cheaper than its predecessor, so the UberBLACK drivers that get converted will earn less per trip, but get more trips for their time.

Meanwhile, the UberX cars that meet their criteria will be given the opportunity to earn more than they currently do. Hmm.

If you’re interested, you can read (some version of) the full gist on TechCity.
