Summertime (Uber) CHI – Kickoff Party
It’s Summer in Chicago! Bust out your white pants, hit up the neighborhood street fest, and lean into patio season. Alright, forget the white pants, but how ’bout an Uber #NeonOnNeon tank?
To celebrate the next three months of outdoor partying, Uber wants to have a drink with you. The first annual Uber Summer Kickoff will be held at Market in West Loop on Wednesday, June 13th. We’ve got some awesome sponsors (Gentlemen Jack, 312 and Grey Goose!) providing a ton of free booze, and top Uber client DJ Rock City will be spinning live. Plus, we’ll be rockin’ those Uber neon tanks we can’t stop talking about!
Today we’re also announcing Uber Intramurals. We know Chicago has some serious Intramural fanatics, and we think it’s only right to get involved. For any team that we sponsor, you’ll get some free rides this summer, and of course a neon tank for everyone on your team. Just note – if you get a tank, it’s required wear at our our Kickoff party, North Avenue Beach, and Lolla!
As always if you need anything, just tweet @Uber_CHI, or even better, come party with us next Wednesday! If you don’t come, well, hopefully you’ll hear the roars echoing down Randolph Street :).
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.
