Guangzhou, Uber has officially launched! 优步终于正式登陆广州!
It has been an incredible week of hard launches in China. Guangzhou rounded out the week Tuesday, on the tail of Shanghai and Shenzhen. With the entire China Team in town, we celebrated our new home with our new friends.
Since December, Uber has been testing its services in the vibrant Pearl River Delta. After two great months, we can now tell you that it’s official, Uber is here to stay. This city has a great history, a vast food culture, and the best football club in Asia, the Guangzhou Evergrande, so know that we can get you and your date to the greatest eats in Yuexiu, pick you up during rush hour in Tianhe, or get you home safely after a night out in Zhujiang New Town and Party Pier.
You asked and we definitely wanted to make it happen. We wanted to provide ease of payment for so many other credit cardholders and to make sure everyone could experience Uber’s reliable and seamless service. Just register in the Uber app with your Alipay account on any iOS devices and you will be a few taps away from getting a ride in Guangzhou. Keep an eye on our Instagram (Uber_GZ), Weibo (Uber_Guangzhou), and WeChat (Uber_GZ).
Lastly, Uber GZ is hiring. We’re looking for a General Manager. We’d love to hear from you, so please share your feedback or introduce a candidate to us at supportGZ@uber.com.
See you around town,

A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button. Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. 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–
This flu season, we’re delivering free flu-fighting care packages across the country. When you receive a pack, you’ll have the option to request a free flu shot from a registered nurse–for up to 5 people.
