Uber Mobile Requests for BlackBerry and beyond!
*Update – August 2012* – We now have car type selection on m.uber.com ! Simply toggle between car types in the drop down menu to order Uber BLACK, SUV, UberX (SF, NYC) and TAXI (CHI)!
No iPhone? No Android? No worries.
We’re excited to announce that our latest product, m.uber.com has been built with love and care for BlackBerry, Windows Phone and beyond! We want to make the Uber experience available to everyone, regardless of phone or carrier. That’s why we’ve introduced mobile web requests to let you request an Uber at any time from any phone.
Now, you can get an Uber quickly and easily through m.uber.com, just as you would using either our iPhone or Android apps. If you’re familiar with our SMS interface, you’ll be right at home with m.uber.com. And if you’re new to Uber, m.uber.com will still be a breeze. :) Here’s what you’ll see:
And when you make requests, you can also save favorite locations for places you frequently request from, such as home or work.
We love hearing from our riders, so contact us with any feedback or find me on Twitter at @minarad. We’re always looking to enhance the Uber experience and we hope that you’ll enjoy our newest product. Uber on!
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.
