Clearly, Calgary Needs Uber!
Whether it’s the Stampede, the holidays, or just your average Friday night, finding a ride home can be next to impossible for Calgarians. With cold winter nights on the horizon, it’s no secret that Calgary is in desperate need of more transportation options–something that Uber can solve!
Over one million rides are taken on the Uber platform each month nationwide, and Calgarians want in on the action too! In the past month alone, over ten thousand people have opened the Uber app from all corners of the city in search of a ride:
This map makes clear that Calgarians are looking for more transportation across the city. We see significant demand exists in areas outside of downtown that are traditionally underserved by taxis like Falconridge, Signal Hill, and Arbour Lake.
What can Uber bring to Calgary?
Uber can help Calgary become more economically vibrant and easier to travel than ever before by:
- Creating a new way for Calgarians to earn income at a time when the local economy is suffering,
- Helping to reduce DUIs by offering a new alternative to getting behind the wheel after a night out, and most importantly…
- Providing access to safe and reliable transportation options to anyone, anywhere, at any time!
The bottom line? We hear you loud and clear Calgary, and we look forward to working with City officials and the Province to connect residents and visitors to safe, affordable, and reliable rides.

And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
