Asia spots its first secret Ubers in Singapore!
There’s no better place for a man of many appetites to call home than Singapore. Extravagant nightlife, architectural splendour, and sophisticated pursuits taken with a dose of spicy laksa.
Who else to have a first taste of the newest delight than Singapore’s resident gourmand, Dr. Leslie Tay? Doctor by day and esteemed food critic of iEatiShootiPost by night, Dr. Tay is a connoisseur of the well-executed pairing. When transitioning from a long day at his clinic to a relaxing dinner, transportation is the last hassle that Leslie should have to face. Having discovered Uber’s arrival in Singapore, Dr. Tay pushed the button for door to door magic to begin: in less than 3 minutes, Albert and his Mercedes S Class rolled up, and they were on their way.
Quickest to the podium, it’s no surprise that star Singaporean swimmer and Paralympics medalist Theresa Goh was next to seize the way of the future. As the flag-bearer for Singapore’s Paralympics team in both Beijing and London, it was only fitting for Theresa to welcome the new standard-bearer for elegant transportation to her home city-state. A push of a button later, an Uber pulled up and sped her to the pool for her latest training session. Singapore’s Rider #1 has come and gone, bringing home a world class service.
And so begins our “test mode” period in Singapore. Download the Uber app for iPhone or Android or go to m.uber.com on a blackberry or web browser to make a booking. Availability of cars may be limited as we work out the kinks during this trial period, but if you’re lucky enough to snatch up an Uber, contact us at help.uber.com.
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. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
