Kia Ora Auckland, Secret Ubers Are Here!

There’s no doubt that New Zealand is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. For those who live in the City of Sails, that’s a fact lived every day. Coffee in Britomart, food in Ponsonby, exercise in Parnell, or a game in Eden Park – sometimes there’s just not enough time in the day to do it all! And it doesn’t help when there are no options to get you around.

Zoe Marshall knows that Uber is all about making sure you’re where you need to be at the push of a button, so when she needed to get her hair done at Dry & Tea for a shoot, she opened the Uber app, pushed a button, and when Bashir opened the door she became Auckland’s Rider Zero!

Secret uberX is now an Auckland thing. While we’re in “test mode,” you can request an Uber, but be aware that availability will be very limited until our official launch.  If you’re one of the lucky few that’s able to grab an Uber, make sure you send us some feedback on your experience so that we can improve it!  You can chat with us at or send us a tweet @Uber_Auckland.

Auckland PM

uberX means easy. No credit card fees, no fumbling with cash, email receipts and a system that gets better every time you leave feedback. Better, faster, and cheapest, that’s the uberX experience, and now it’s here!

Try it out by:

  • Downloading the Uber App to your Android device or iPhone.
  • Checking ETAs and dropping the pin where you are.

Less Traffic, More Jam

A typical ride: you request, have small talk with your driver, and safely get where you need to go.
