On-demand pizza from Uber and Isaiah Thomas
UPDATE – Isaiah sliced through Sacramento and successfully delivered pizzas. Here’s the recap:
When he was but a child, Sacramento point guard Isaiah Thomas studied the greats of the game, simulating buzzer-beaters and practicing cross-overs in the parks and driveways of his hometown. Isaiah had legitimate hoop dreams, yet he couldn’t seem to let go of another fantasy…
He wanted to be a pizza guy.
This Friday, Uber is helping make Isaiah’s dream come true. For $22, pizza lovers in Sacramento can use the Uber app to order two large pies and a two-liter soda — delivered right to their doorsteps by #22 himself.
HOW IT WORKS
- Open the Uber app between 6 p.m – 8 p.m. on 2/21
- Set your delivery location and click the pizza guy icon in the app
- If he’s available, The Pizza Guy will head to your location shortly
- Pay directly through the app; no cash necessary
Demand for this promotion will be high and availability will be limited, but you miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take. If you can’t get The Pizza Guy on your first try, please be persistent.

We have developed a new pilot program – Xchange Leasing – which is a leasing option administered by an Uber subsidiary and designed to fit with the flexibility that drivers value most. The Xchange lease is one of a kind, and offers value that traditional auto leases do not provide. Unlike most multi-year leases that have high fees for early termination, drivers who participate in Xchange for at least 30 days will be able to return the car with only two weeks notice, and limited additional costs. The program allows for unlimited mileage and the option to lease a used car, with routine maintenance also included.
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.
