Thank You Berlin! And “Servus” Munich!
Only three weeks have passed since we celebrated our official launch in Berlin as the first German Uber city at Cookies Cream in Berlin Mitte. While demand was already high during our test phase, user numbers have exponentially grown since then. We really want to thank you guys for such an amazing welcome! Also, as more and more drivers are joining Uber everyday, passengers’ waiting time has decreased. Right now, an Uber is picking you up in approximately 5 minutes depending on your location.
As more drivers join Uber, the diversity in our car fleet is also rapidly increasing: In addition to Mercedes S-Classes, more and more BMW 7 Series’, Audi A8s and VW Phaetons are joining the Uber network and roaming the streets of Berlin at any time of any day.
Another effect of Uber’s growing network is the inclusion of Berlin Tegel (TXL) in our regular service area. From now on, passengers to and from Tegel will be charged at the normal Uber rate, rather than the flat rate previously used.
Events & Conferences
In the last three weeks, we has also partnered with local events and conferences to ensure a stylish, safe and reliable ride for all participants, with great feedback from all sides. From the CEO Dinner last week to the MONGODB conference this week, We have partnered with over 20 small and big events since launch. Over the next weeks, we will be announcing more and more partnerships with big events and conferences to spread the #Uberlove to all Berliners. If you have an event and want us to join forces (we love birthday parties as well as global conferences), drop us a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
Next stop: Munich!
After Berlin has welcomed us with open arms, Uber is spreading out to other parts of the country. We now have a team on the ground in Munich to prepare for our launch there.
Interested in joining the Uber team? Positions are still available and can be viewed on https://www.uber.com/jobs, together with other European positions to support Uber’s expansion across the continent.

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.
