New Abidjan Car Services Inspired by Uber


Uber, the U.S.-based online transportation network company, operates a mobile app that allows consumers with smartphones to book cab service from Uber drivers who use their own cars. As the company makes inroads in Africa, entrepreneurs in the West African nation of Ivory Coast are trying to stay one step ahead. Emilie Iob reports from the Ivorian commercial capital, Abidjan, where at least four Uber-like car services have launched since last year.
