Aadaab Hyderabad, Secret Ubers Are Here!
Hyderabad wears many hats elegantly — it is the city of pearls, biryani, sports, Mughal architecture, pharmaceutical innovation, and last but definitely not least, Tollywood. That’s why we’re thrilled to have secret Ubers roll into town in Hyderabad, bringing safe and nawabi style transportation into our third city in India!
Hyderabadi Icons & Athletes, your Uber is arriving now!
Jwala Gutta, the undefeated badminton champion and Arjuna Awardee, got the first peek of Uber in the city. She opened up the app in Banjara Hills, requested a ride and minutes later was picked up in an Audi A6 and whisked away to the airport.
Around the same time, Mohammad Ali Baig, the ‘Poster Boy of Hyderabad Theater’ and mastermind behind the Qadir Ali Baig Theater Festival was opening up the app in Murad Nagar. Within minutes, there was an Uber ride at his doorstep with Kishan waiting to take him away in style in a Jaguar.
Uber and Tollywood: A Romance For The Ages
Soon after that, the charming and dapper Sundeep Kishan managed to get a ride. The Tollywood star fired up the app on his film set in Jubilee Hills, and voila, a Jaguar was waiting curbside faster than Venkatadri Express! He took the time to soak in the Uber experience, even hopping behind the wheel for a quick photo.
With Hyderabad’s very first riders spreading the word, Raashi Khanna, the star of Madras Cafe and upcoming Tollywood star, was in need of a reliable and stylish ride to her shoot in Film Nagar, and Uber saved the day.
Ride in nawabi style with Uber Hyderabad!
So whether it’s getting to Madhapur to karaoke, Jubilee Hills for a classy dinner or Banjara Hills for a night on the town, Hyderabadis deserve an easy and classy way to get around their beautiful city, and Uber is here to deliver.
Over the next few weeks, Uber will be in “secret testing mode” in Hyderabad; availability will be limited but we will be working hard to make more cars available when and where you want them. Please do take a ride and share your experience with us on Twitter at @Uber_HYD or email at email@example.com.
Team Uber Hyderabad
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.
