Congratulations to the Kentucky Wildcats, NCAA (and most importantly!) #UberMadness Champions! Remember, Kentucky fans, you’ll be riding FREE until Friday at 5pm or your 10th ride of the promotion.
Thanks to all who played #UberMadness!
And then there were two! Congrats to Kansas and Kentucky fans who are now riding for 64% and 32% off, respectively! Be sure to watch the championship game Monday night (4/2) to see which team’s discount goes to 100%!!
The Final Four is set – congrats to the 24% of you that are still alive, particularly those Louisville fans out there getting 64% off all week! Here’s the breakout:
After two rounds of #UberMadness, 49% of you remain alive, having collectively chosen 15 of the Sweet 16 (Ohio University slipped in!). In terms of upsets, Vanderbilt and Florida State tripped up the most people, while going forward, Kentucky is the top choice, followed by North Carolina and Ohio State.
As for discounts – those of you choosing NC State (current 44% discount) and Xavier (current 40% discount) are the big winners so far. Great picks! See the rest of the current discounts here and good luck this weekend!
At Uber, we’re making predictions every day – it’s all about matching supply and demand. But now, with March Madness kicking off this week, here’s your turn to make a prediction. Introducing: #UberMadness! However, just as traffic, weather and events can get in our way, the buzzer-beating upsets and Cinderella stories of the Men’s NCAA Basketball Tournament can derail your predictions! That’s why we’re busting your brackets with some serious Uber stakes:
We’re giving big Uber discounts based on the success of your chosen team in the tournament…and of course, we’re giving free Uber to anyone that picks the tournament champion! Here’s how to play in #UberMadness:
What Do I Win?
You’ll start with an Uber discount equal to the seeding of your favorite team. Pick a #1 seed and you begin with a 1% discount, a #2 seed a 2% discount, and so on down the line. Each time your team wins, the discount doubles, until you’re riding for FREE. If your team loses, all discounts are lost – womp-womp :(, so choose your team and when to ride carefully! See a full schedule of discounts by seed, by round here and follow updates on this blog post after each round.
It’s going to be a great March so get your code loaded before tip-off Thursday and get ready for a wild month of #UberMadness!

Learn about Uber vs. driving jobs.
Whether you’re a freshman or a senior headed back to campus this fall, one thing is certain—you’ll need to eat. And there is nothing worse than being limited to questionable cafeteria food or taking a chance on expired leftovers in the back of the fridge. The best news? UberEATS is expanding to 30+ major college campuses by the end of the year, from Penn State to LSU to Boise State. Since we want you to focus on what you love about college and not worry about your next meal, we’re predicting the 5 times you’ll need to order UberEATS this semester.
We are excited to surpass the 100th city mark by welcoming two Brazilian cities, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, to the UberEATS family. From Atlanta to Warsaw, people have truly embraced this easy and reliable way to discover the food they love at the push of a button. Whether that’s an Indian inspired samosa, a good old-fashioned American burger or Vietnamese pho, people in 27 countries are using UberEATS to get a taste of the world’s flavors at the push of a button.
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central.
