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
A typical ride: you request, have small talk with your driver, and safely get where you need to go. For Jonathan, a driver-partner in California, his rides are anything but ordinary — he wants his passengers to have fun and turned each trip into a dance party — and now the latest viral video. We caught up with the man in front of the cam to learn more about what inspired him to create this feel-good video.
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.
