Vanakkam Chennai, Secret Ubers Are Here!

Chennai is a land of many hues. It is traditional, bastion of magnificent ancient temples and splendorous kanjivaram silk sarees. It is passionate, battling over the best davara filter coffee or eternal Kollywood debates of Rajni vs. Kamal. It is intellectual, home to prestigious universities and a burgeoning manufacturing industry. It is timeless, flocking to classical music festivals and headbanging rock concerts with equal vigor. So we are proud and privileged to have secret Ubers roll into Chennai, bringing safe and semma style transportation into our fourth city in India!

Chennai, your Uber is arriving now!

Karun Chandhok

Uber is here to whisk away residents in style and so it was fitting that Chennai’s home boy Karun Chandhok, also India’s very own Formula One racer, got the first peek of Uber in the city. He opened up the app in Kotturpuram, requested a ride and minutes later a BMW 5 Series was at his doorstep. He took the time to soak in the Uber experience, and then whizzed away to a relaxing afternoon on the town.

Ride in style with Uber Chennai machi !

So whether it’s getting to Khader Nawaz Khan road for a fancy dinner, a Carnatic music concert at Music Academy or just unwinding at Marina Beach, Chennaites deserve an easy and elegant way to get around their bustling city, and Uber is here to deliver.

Over the next few weeks, Uber will be in “secret testing mode” in Chennai; availability will be limited but we will be working hard to make more cars available whenever you want them and wherever you need them. Please do take a ride and share your experience with us on Twitter at @Uber_Chennai or email at

Nandri and Uber on,
