Orlando, Your Uber is Arriving Now
For too long the City Beautiful has lacked the transportation options that are available through Uber in more than 125 cities worldwide, but that ends today. With Uber, you get the convenience of a FAST PASS to anywhere, without the hassles of parking or the burden of being the designated driver.
Shooting Guard Victor Oladipo is already a believer…
The #2 overall pick in last year’s draft showed no hesitation as he opened up his Uber app, requested a ride, and within minutes his driver was on site. With this being the first uberX ride in Orlando, Victor now holds the title of Uber Orlando Rider Zero. For the next two weeks, you can download the Uber app and ride uberX for FREE!

WHAT IS UBERX?
In Orlando, uberX includes ridesharing, offering Uber reliability at prices up to 36% cheaper than a taxi. Drivers on uberX have mid-range or hybrid vehicles in a variety of colors and styles, with seating for up to four people.
To maintain the Uber standard you expect, all drivers pass Uber’s rigorous screening process. In order to be an uberX driver in Orlando, drivers must pass:
• A stringent background check
• A driving history check
• Ongoing quality controls
As always, your safety and satisfaction remain our highest priority. All Uber rides are backed by the driver’s insurance policy as well as our corporate insurance policy, and you will always have the option to rate every driver and contribute to the quality with your feedback.
If you don’t see an uberX at first, don’t worry! Since Uber is still in testing phase, there may be times when availability is limited. Just refresh your Uber app again after a few minutes to request a ride and you will be on your way.

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.
