Get Ready Malaysia, Secret Ubers are now in Kuala Lumpur!

KL-ites, Secret Ubers have arrived! Whether you’re heading to Sepang for the Grand Prix, bar-hopping in Changkat, or weaving through the winding traffic in City Centre to get to your next meeting, Uber’s got you covered. Today, the first Ubers glided onto the streets of KL and we can promise there’s never been a more safe, reliable, or convenient way to get around this city.

Just a few hours ago, secret Ubers made their first appearance. Formula One racer, Alex Yoong, heard Uber was headed to town so he downloaded the app, fired it up, and grabbed the first Uber on the road! He’s used to being in the driver seat, but today, he happily jumped in the back and let the driver take him to the tracks!
