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,
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.
