Secret Ubers Are Roaming Melbourne!
Matthew Bate Tackles Melbourne’s First Uber!
It’s a red hot day in our nation’s fashion capital, but it’s sport that’s really in dire need of Uber. AFL is Melbourne’s pastime, food and soul, and former Melbourne Demon Matthew Bate needs to get to training.
Footy players put in 100% on the field, so spending energy worrying about how to get there is something Matthew could do without. When he needed a ride, he simply opened his Uber app and pushed the button. 4 minutes later, Sajid rolled up in his slick black Chrysler 300C. Easy as!
With that, Secret Ubers are now testing in Melbourne! When you’re out on the town, coming home, or anywhere in between, Uber can take you there in convenience and style.
While we’re in “test mode”, you can request an Uber, but be aware that availability will be limited until our official launch. If you’re one of the lucky few that’s able to grab an Uber, make sure you shoot us heaps of feedback on your experience so that we can make our Melbourne launch classier than a Toorak dinner party. Just download the app for Android or iPhone, or go to m.uber.com, and if you can catch a Secret Uber, your driver will be on their way. If you’ve got any issues, suggestions, high fives or feedback, you can chat with us at firstname.lastname@example.org or chuck us a tweet @Uber_Melbourne.
Uber on! #UberOz
A typical ride: you request, have small talk with your driver, and safely get where you need to go. For Jonathan, a driver-partner in California, his rides are anything but ordinary — he wants his passengers to have fun and turned each trip into a dance party — and now the latest viral video. We caught up with the man in front of the cam to learn more about what inspired him to create this feel-good video.
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.
