Found: Chicago’s Secret Ubers
We know, sometimes you’re promised gigantic, game-changing developments that only result in a BIG FREAKING HOLE in the city. Well fear not Chicago, some things aren’t imaginary. “Secret Ubers” are on the road as @Uber_CHI begins testing…
AND, apparently it didn’t stay quiet long. Our “secret Ubers” had only been on the road for a couple hours and rider zero, Tom Conrad, CTO of Pandora & his team used Uber to cruise from W Lakeshore over to Groupon’s 600 West HQ! Go ahead and help us test, but be careful, this is for adventurous Uber riders only!
During our “secret Uber” test phase we’ll have limited supply and low availability but if you’re one of the lucky ones who gets a ride, please feel free to send us your thougths & feedback to supportChicago@uber.com or on Twitter @Uber_CHI.

(Apparently the first ride went well, 5 stars!)
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.
