Kasa Kai Pune! Your Secret Ubers Are Arriving Now!

Pune – Student city, pensioner’s town, home of the renowned Osho Ashram, arguably India’s second real IT hub, automobile central and everything that’s Maharashtra encapsulated into one buzzing city – just got a safe, reliable, and stylish transportation solution! On a quiet Thursday morning, thousands of Punekars woke up to the news of secret Ubers roaming the streets of the cultural capital of Maharashtra.


It wasn’t long before the word got out. From the bustling streets of Koregaon Park to the corporate parks at Hadapsar, Punekars went all out to grab their first Uber! The music community took the ‘lead’ with Vishal Dadlani, Bollywood music director and Pentagram vocalist, grabbing that coveted Rider Zero spot. He fired up his app to get an Uber to his studio and within minutes a slick beemer showed up. We only got a few seconds with him and the car, before they zoomed off. Close on Vishal’s heels were Indian Ocean, India’s first fusion rock band, who did not miss a chance to grab the gleaming white Audi that was cruising around the neighbourhood.

Be it the tourists at Koregaon Park street, the property investors in Bavdhan, the IT professionals at Hinjewadi or the shopaholics at Camp, Punekars from all walks of life will find a way to incorporate Uber into their daily commutes. When getting around town becomes easy, cities become much more enjoyable to live in. Uber is going to do just that. Wait and watch, Pune!

During our testing phase we will have limited cars available; expect longer ETAs than usual. We are working hard to add cars and deliver the ‘Uber’ experience in Pune. Give us a try if you haven’t yet! New users, use the promo code ‘UberPuneLaunch’ and get 2 free rides up to Rs. 300 each! (New users only, valid up to 30th June, 2014)

Follow our Twitter handle to see what we’re up to. We’d love to hear your feedback so do keep writing in!

As we grow in India, we’re looking for fantastic people to join us. In Pune, we’re looking for a rockstar Community Manager — someone to be the face of Uber in the city and grow Uber’s brand in style & a killer Operations & Logistics Manager – the one who has a rare combination of analytical thinking & inter-personal ability to manage partnerships. . If you or anyone you know is interested, send them our way!

Jai Maharashtra!
