Denver UBERcade Remix!
I honestly don’t know what was more popular yesterday in Denver: The presidential debate or…UBERcade!
The day of the first presidential debate in Denver on October 3rd, we gave the people something to really cheer about: UBERcade! It came complete with Uber Secret Service, presidential treatment and a TON of looks. The moment we knew UBERcade was legit, was when a woman driving alongside the UBERcade wrote “Obama, we love you!” on a piece of scrap paper and was swerving all over the road. We’re pretty sure she believed President Obama was in the UBERcade. Classic.
We picked up some awesome people along the way too (featured below). The UBERcade swooped up some thrilled DU students on their way to DebateFest, a reporter from the San Fransisco Examiner and Xavier, a Frenchman who was visting America for the first time! What a way to arrive in the good ol’ U. S. of A.! Again, classic.
Take a look at all the fun we had in Denver with UBERcade!
Thanks to D.C. for this awesome idea! I think the UBERcade is here to stay. Look out for UBERcade in a city near you…

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.
