TULSA, WE’RE BRINGING UBER TO YOU!
Tulsa spoke, and we listened! We’re happy to announce that Uber is up and running in the city of the Center of the Universe!
Uber is hitting the streets of Tulsa with our ultra-affordable ridesharing option uberX. Tulsa’s Young Professionals (TYPros) kicked off the day booking rides 0, 1, 2 and 3! With packed social calendars and lots of awesome networking events they’re as excited as we are to hit the ground running.
TYPros are responsible for tons of exciting initiatives in the city, focusing on retaining young professionals and growing the city’s business leaders of tomorrow. Their campaign “Bring it to Tulsa” has ignited some pretty incredible developments in Tulsa, including today’s launch of uberX. The whole “If you build it, he will come” motto definitely holds true for things other than baseball folks, as seen by this TYPros grand slam.
With the tap of a button, Tulsans can now be connected to the safest, most reliable transportation providers in the city. Never get stranded at the Center of the Universe again. Enjoy all the concerts at Cain’s without the stress of parking.
On uberX, you’ll find mid-range or hybrid vehicles in a variety of colors and styles, with seating for up to four people. Uber will connect you with the closest available driver in town, ready to pick you up in minutes. You’ll see a photo of your driver, the car they are driving, and even watch them on the app as they drive toward you.

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.
