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!
We have developed a new pilot program – Xchange Leasing – which is a leasing option administered by an Uber subsidiary and designed to fit with the flexibility that drivers value most. The Xchange lease is one of a kind, and offers value that traditional auto leases do not provide. Unlike most multi-year leases that have high fees for early termination, drivers who participate in Xchange for at least 30 days will be able to return the car with only two weeks notice, and limited additional costs. The program allows for unlimited mileage and the option to lease a used car, with routine maintenance also included.
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.
