Since we relaunched in April, Uber has been proud to become a member of the Portland community– serving over 80,000 Portland area riders. As part of our commitment to making sure all Portlanders have access to safe, reliable rides, Uber is expanding Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV) reliability.
After just two months, Uber is connecting Portland’s neighborhoods like never before. In fact, after only a short time in Portland, more than 1,500 Portland residents have partnered with Uber to provide over 100,000 safe, reliable rides to their neighbors. During this time, we have found that most popular destinations are in the core neighborhood of Portland.
From Beaverton to Tigard to Hillsboro to Gresham, people have been relying on Uber to connect them to safe, affordable, and reliable rides since late last year. At Uber we are especially proud of our emerging role as a complementary service to existing public transportation. Here in Portland, we are helping make the Portland Metro Area more accessible to residents, commuters, and tourists.
As we build a home here in the great state of Oregon, we want you to know exactly what you should expect from us when it comes to safety. Our goal is to always move Oregonians around in the safest and most reliable manner.
Thanks to the leadership of Mayor Willey of Hillsboro, Mayor Doyle of Beaverton, Mayor Cook of Tigard, and Mayor Bemis of Gresham, coupled with the great reception we’ve received from residents, Uber is connecting the Oregon Metro area in a meaningful way.
The city of Portland is known to do things a little differently. True to form, the very first Uber rider in Portland is someone who embodies all of the city’s quirks.
