Celebrating Uber’s official launch in Lyon!

Lyonnais restaurants are some of the world’s finest, the nightlife is bustling and the city hosts one of the largest business districts in Europe – a trifecta making Lyon the perfect addition to the ever growing list of Uber cities around the world! Even though it has been only a few weeks since secret Ubers hit the streets of Lyon, locals are already embracing the service as the best way to get around and get the most out of their beloved city.

To celebrate the launch, the Uber team gathered some of the most influential Lyonnais in tech, entrepreneurship, media, sports and finance at Michelin-starred restautant Têtedoie. The partygoers have been huge supporters of Uber’s arrival to town since the very beginning and we are humbled and grateful for their help in spreading the #UberLove around Lyon!
