London, your UberEXEC is arriving now!
Here at Uber we believe that you should have transportation options at every price-point, after all CHOICE is a beautiful thing. Gone are the days when you have to juggle a dozen different apps to figure out the best way to get from A to B.
It’s no secret that we like to WORK HARD, PLAY HARD and as such we’re fast becoming the go-to for riding in ultimate style, luxury and convenience; be it the perfect date night in LUX or running those day to day chores in X, but let’s be honest, the weekdays are when convenience and efficiency with your time matter most.
Cue our corporate equivalent, for those who want a chic yet understated alternative to LUX; every car coming complete with smart phone in-car chargers for those crucial moments! And who better to kick things off than Britain’s football royalty, Jamie and Louise Redknapp as our rider zero. The Redknapps tapped the app, got picked up at Nobu Park Lane and were swiftly and stylishly transported home.

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.
