Connecting Portland’s Neighborhoods

After just two months, Uber is connecting Portland’s neighborhoods like never before. In fact, after only a short time in Portland, more than 1,500 Portland residents have partnered with Uber to provide over 100,000 safe, reliable rides to their neighbors. During this time, we have found that most popular destinations are in the core neighborhood of Portland.

“Heeey you guys!” The Goonies turn 30.

When Oregonians think of weekend getaways, there’s nothing like blasting to the past with a two-hour trip out to Astoria and Cannon Beach, the home of the Goonies. You won’t find a pirate ship here (let us know if you do), but you will find the familiar homes, shops and forested hills from our favorite childhood classic that refuses to “say die”. To celebrate the Goonies’ 30th anniversary, we’ve rounded up a tour of Goonieville that you won’t want to miss.

HAPPY NATIONAL BIKE TO WORK DAY!

Happy National Bike to Work Day! Today, all over the country, people are hopping on their bicycles and hitting the road.

ENSURING UBER IS THE MOST RELIABLE CHOICE

We’re committed to ensuring riders have a safe, reliable and hassle-free way to move around the city. While we strive for this level of service to happen around the clock, sometimes we see such high demand that the number of available cars gets tight. Think back to those times waiting on Burnside after a Timbers […]
