Uber Officially Launches in Shenzhen! 优步正式进军中国深圳！
Three months ago, we rolled out Secret Ubers on the streets of Shenzhen, our second foray into China after we began testing our service in Shanghai. Why did we pick Shenzhen as our second pit stop? Innovation, a city of transplants, and a place with a work hard play hard attitude – all of these things define Shenzhen as a hub of possibility with a side of fun.
Shenzhen is a city of migrants – millions have moved here in the last 30 years in the hopes of finding opportunities that would propel their lives forward. In the process, they’ve built Shenzhen into a hub of innovation and economic possibility. From Tencent and Huawei in Nanshan to the electronics vendors in Huaqiangbei to the stock exchange in Futian, this city is redefining what it means to be “Made in China.” We’re proud to announce that Uber has officially arrived in Shenzhen, as the city’s newest transplant. And in the three months since we landed here, we’ve heard from so many of our riders about how Uber has changed the way they get around this city:
Getting a ride home from work from Futian or Luohu isn’t a problem anymore around 5PM
Finding a reliable ride in Shekou and Nanshan has become so much easier
Getting home from a night out in Coco Park or date night at one of Shenzhen’s famed hot pot venues isn’t a pain anymore
Getting a ride from the Hong Kong border isn’t a hassle of waiting in lines
The response since our arrival from our many friends and supporters has been phenomenal, and we are honored to now be a permanent fixture in your city.
In conjunction with our launch in Shenzhen, we are excited to announce that we now have Alipay as a payment option in our mobile app and that Uber now has a Chinese name, 优步 (meaning “step forward”). For those with iOS phones, you will be able to register for Uber with your Alipay account details and pay for all rides through Alipay! We’ve done this to broaden and deepen our reach here in Shenzhen by localizing our product. With these changes, we are committed to celebrating Uber’s path forward in Shenzhen.

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.
