A Sweet, Dairy Surprise for Cowtown

The Calgary Stampede has come and gone, and we hope you had a great time!

We wish we could have been a part of the event to ensure Calgarians had access to safe and reliable transportation options during this busy time. Unfortunately, big taxi companies are working to distort the facts around what is preventing competition for more options.

The current minimum fare requirements in Calgary prevent consumers from experiencing the benefits of expanded access to safer, cheaper, and more reliable transportation options. We believe residents deserve options at all price points, not simply the highest end and look forward to working with the city to ensure Uber is able to connect drivers with riders throughout Calgary.

In the meantime, we want to give you access to a cool, refreshing treat on a hot summer day. That’s why we’re excited to be bringing #UberIceCream to Calgary on Friday, July 18th for one day only! Our surprise and delight campaign will deliver cool, dairy goodness to residents in more than 144 cities around the world, including Calgary.

    UberEATS: Using technology to build a reliable food delivery experience
