This President’s Day, Take a Trip in the UBERcade
President’s Day is almost over, and the UBERcade has gone home for the night, but we’ve got a fantastic video recap! Check it out, below.
Admit it, you’ve dreamed about riding in the Presidential motorcade at least once. Now that we’re in DC, we’re dedicated to bringing you as much of that Presidential experience as we can, every time you ride.
This Monday, President’s Day, we’re stepping up our game in the District.
Monday is your chance to feel just as baller as Barack, rolling around town in your very own Uber motorcade: the UBERcade!
Everyone who requests an Uber this Monday will get a convenient and classy ride, like always. But a few lucky riders may get a ride in the UBERcade, featuring three Uber Secret Service agents and two Suburbans flanking a sleek black town car. We can’t clear traffic, and we may not have tear gas, bulletproof armor, or a backup oxygen system in the trunk like B.O. does, but we guarantee that this Monday you’re going to turn some heads as you roll through town in your UBERcade.
* Note: this motorcade does not come with sirens. 😉
UPDATE: Bonus! All rides in the #UBERcade in DC today are FREE. Get riding!
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.
