Uber trip data for Johannesburg and Pretoria is now available on Uber Movement. This makes South Africa the first Afrikan country to have some of its Uber trip data on the platform since it was made available to the public on 30 August 2017.
Uber Movement shares anonymized GPS data and traffic information collected from over two billion Uber trips globally with the aim of, among others, helping city planners identify trouble spots and keep the traffic flowing.
Average trip time between Sandton and Fourways in Johannesburg during June 2017.
Currently, the data on the platform, for both Johannesburg and Pretoria, is available for trips until the end of June 2017. Specific trip data is not available as the data that is publicly available on the platform is anonymized.
Uber announced the availability of the tool to a closed user group earlier in January 2017.
To access the platform all you need is an Uber account, and follow these steps:
