Servus! Munich’s first Ubers roll out….
Characterized by its unparalleled beer festival(s), swashbuckling football team, and unabashed approach to women’s traditional mountain attire, Munich is one of the world’s most expensive and expansive cities.
Indeed, as a business and culture mecca tucked in an idyllic Alpine landscape, the city is home for those who expect the best, and who aren’t afraid to ask for it. So it’s no surprise that Secret Ubers have been spotted transporting Munich’s most stylish residents throughout town.
One example: while wrapping up lunch today at Schumann’s, Kera Till — Illustrator Extraordinaire and Vogue blogger — opened the Uber app to get a ride to a meeting with her editor. Within minutes, Uber driver Michael arrived to whisk her down the streets of Maxvorstadt in a brand new, sleek Mercedes S-Class.
If you want to be one of the first Müncheners to try our service, just grab the free iPhone/Android/Windows/Blackberry app to sign up. Uber Munich is in testing phase, so Secret Ubers may be a bit elusive at first, but keep trying to catch one as more Ubers are hitting the streets everyday in areas like Lehel, Haidhausen, the Glockenbachviertel, and Schwabing. If you’re one of the lucky ones to snag a ride, send us your feedback and #UberLove to @Uber_MUC on Twitter and “Uber Deutschland” on Facebook, or shoot us an email at email@example.com
We’re excited for Munich to join Uber’s ever-expanding coverage in Germany, after our official launch in Berlin last month. Keep an eye out for some appropriately Bavarian-sized specials as we lead up to our full launch in the coming weeks…
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.
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.
