G’day Mate! Secret Ubers Land in Sydney!
Art vs. Science use their
flippers Ubers to get down round!
Electro-house dance punks Dan MacNamee, Jim Finn and Dan Williams form the trifecta that is Art vs. Science. It’s a Friday morning in Sydney, and summer may be around the corner, but the taxis definitely aren’t.
Stranded in the east trying to get to their recording session, the boys hit up their Uber app. Straight away, a black Caprice rolled up, driven by seasoned professional William.
In that portentous moment of glory and explosiveness, Art vs. Science was crowned Uber Sydney’s “Rider Zero.”
So begins Uber’s super secret stealth scenario starring Sydneysiders!
Our First Fleet is being tested in Australia and we’re bound to hit some snags. Over the coming weeks, we’ll be tinkering with our pricing, placement, and positioning.
While we’re in “test mode,” you can request an Uber, but be aware that availability will be limited until our official launch. If you’re one of the lucky few that’s able to grab an Uber, make sure you shoot us heaps of feedback on your experience so that we can make our Sydney launch hotter than this summer’s going to be. You can chat with us at firstname.lastname@example.org or chuck us a tweet @Uber_Sydney.
Heads up nUbers, this is strictly for Adventurous Riders Only!
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.
