Uber Rolls Into Brew City With Rider Zero Brandon Knight
Brandon Knight is no stranger to scoring points on the court. When Brandon needs to get around Brew City, he counts on Uber to come through with the assist. That’s why when he needed a ride to practice on Tuesday, he opened up his Uber app and requested the very first Uber to hit the streets of Milwaukee!
Milwaukee Is The First Uber City In Wisconsin!
Home to some of the best festivals in the country and with IPA’s being freshly brewed just a HOP away, bringing Uber to Milwaukee was a no-brainer for Team Uber. With UberBLACK hitting the streets this weekend, Milwaukeens now have a convenient, stylish, and seamless way to move around the city.
With just the push of a button, Uber will connect you with the closest available driver in town, ready to pick you up in minutes. You’ll be able to see a picture of your driver, the car they’re driving, and can even track their progress as they drive toward you!
Please note that during this early testing phase there will be limited availability, but we’re working hard to make more cars available each and every day. Request your first uberBLACK ride and let us know what you think on twitter @Uber_MKE, or via e-mail at SupportMilwaukee@Uber.com

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.
