uberX Turns One!

It’s been one year since we launched uberX in Melbourne, and what a year it’s been! From delivering kitten cuddles and ice cream, to offering once-in-a-lifetime rides in choppers and supercars, we’ve been truly humbled to be a part of so many people’s everyday lives by providing safe, reliable and cost effective transport across Victoria.


To celebrate this milestone, we got together with the people that made it all possible: our riders, partner drivers, city teams and friends of Uber, and threw not one, but two parties to say a big THANK YOU for your continued support over the past year.


Of course, none of this would have been possible without the support of our valued partner drivers. Here at Uber we’re proud to continue being able to provide a system that enables partner drivers to support themselves and their families with a flexible, reliable source of income. Check out some of our partner driver stories at love.uber.com.

We also want to extend this thank you to our sponsors, Refresh Hospitality, Chappelli, Massive Weiners, Doughboys, Briony Bennet and The Lite Booth.

To take a look at a few of the snaps from the night, check out the album on Facebook.

Again, we thank everyone for coming on this ride with us, and look forward to many more rides ahead. Uber on!
