Uber Auckland Has Officially Launched
During the last month, you may have caught one of our secret Ubers as we were testing in Auckland. We’ve been tweaking and tinkering and we’re ready to call Auckland home.
Dear Auckland, Uber has officially launched.
We threw a little celebration over the weekend at Skycity, with some help from our friends at Hyundai, Stella Artois and Grey Goose. We’ve enjoyed working with all of you to create uberX, a low cost, reliable service that now offers rides in Ponsonby, Parnell, the city and Mount Eden. As we grow, the service will extend further; we’re looking forward to providing Uber service to more and more of Auckland. If you’ve got any questions on pricing, or service area, or you just want to run a fare quote, you can visit our city page here.
We’re very much looking forward to seeing you soon
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.
