——————————————————————————————————————————————————– On the ice, Patrick Kane is busy dominating shoot-outs and helping his teammates battle for another Stanley Cup. Off the ice, he trades in his skates for sneakers and loves to hit up some of Chicago’s best spots with friends, just like everyone else. His preferred method of transportation? Uber, of course! Patrick was surprised to find another option when he fired up his app on a recent rainy afternoon: UBERx. Sold on the reliability of UBERx with prices in line with Uber TAXI, he decided to give it a try. Patrick requested a car from the warmth of his downtown apartment and within minutes got notification that his driver Bekzot had arrived out front in a shiny black 2013 Toyota Camry hybrid.
With that, Patrick Kane solidified his title as Chicago’s UBERx Rider Zero! Hit the streets like Patrick Kane by trying out UBERx the next time you need a ride.
Sign up here or use code CHIKANE to get $10 off your first Uber ride (excluding TAXI). Already an Uber user? Pass along the code to a friend and take a ride together!
Uber on, Patrick!

Today, we are excited to announce that Uber will give $5.5M to support a new robotics faculty chair as well as three fellowships at CMU. This gift is part of a partnership we announced earlier this year. In addition, we’re pumped to be part of a growing innovation ecosystem in Pittsburgh that includes world leading research institutions and companies, as well as an increasing number of start-ups.
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.
