Uber Means Business
Through our early growth it’s become obvious that traveling hassle free & in style is something that is important to you. Thursday through Saturday nights are crankin’ and we can barely keep enough cars on the road for all the rides you’re doing (thank you ;). But we do more than just weekends…
Uber operates everyday… that ends in ‘Y’.
One thing that is important for you to know is that Uber is all about the work day too! Whether you’re traveling to SFO or bouncing within the city form mtg to mtg, Uber can help. In San Francisco, we have cars available, during the day, 7 days a week and we understand that you need a tool/service that you can count on to get around.
This week, give UberCab a shot to remove the hassle from your commutes.
We wanted to open our doors (pun intended) to those of you who found UberCab via the TechCrunch article last week. There were a lot of you (thanks @Arrington) and we want to make sure you’re all taken care of.
Read the article here: http://tcrn.ch/ubercab2
So, if you joined Uber from TechCrunch, (1) login online, (2) go the the ‘Promo’ tab, and (3) enter TECHCRUNCH15 for a free $15 in credits. This should cover your first ride so let us know how it goes. Again, welcome :)
*Must be redeemed by Wednesday of next week.
Say Hi to Austin!
We’ve recently hired someone to help us with our marketing and community efforts. It became very apparent that being available for you guys and making sure that your Uber experiences are awesome is critical. Austin (@uberaustin on twitter) is here to help us with that, so say HEY!!!
Please reach out if you have any questions, I’m always eager to chat.
We have developed a new pilot program – Xchange Leasing – which is a leasing option administered by an Uber subsidiary and designed to fit with the flexibility that drivers value most. The Xchange lease is one of a kind, and offers value that traditional auto leases do not provide. Unlike most multi-year leases that have high fees for early termination, drivers who participate in Xchange for at least 30 days will be able to return the car with only two weeks notice, and limited additional costs. The program allows for unlimited mileage and the option to lease a used car, with routine maintenance also included.
A new report conducted in partnership with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) reveals that when empowered with more transportation options like Uber, people are making better choices that save lives.
New technologies are creating opportunities no one could have imagined. To understand Uber’s place in that trend, we commissioned a survey of our driver-partners and put together a comprehensive analysis.
