Uber Answers Ireland’s Call
Dublin has long been known as one of the world’s most enchanting cities – a place where great tradition, hospitality and a pint of the good stuff are never more than a few steps away. Life got a bit sweeter for Dubliners this morning when secret Ubers were spotted across town.
Ireland and Leinster rugby standout Cian Healy was the first to catch a ride, when he opened his iPhone at Clontarf Rugby Club and his chauffeur pulled up in a matter of minutes. Cian was off, and so was Uber in Dublin!

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.
