Philadelphia has some of the most entertaining nightlife in the country and with Uber it’s never been easier to enjoy a night out on the town.
Philly is home to a bustling community of independent businesses, which offer goods and services as unique as the city itself. Today, in honor of Small Business Saturday® and celebration of local culture, we’re partnering with some of our favorite boutiques, coffee shops, breweries, restaurants, and bars.
Uber is available to more than 77% of Pennsylvanians with over 87% of rides arriving within 10 minutes, and more than half arriving in less than four minutes. We are proudly connecting riders and drivers in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton, Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, State College, Lancaster, York, Reading and Erie, and we look forward to continuing to expand across the state.
Last Friday, over 100 driver-partners and their families gathered with the Uber Philly team at a partner appreciation event to celebrate these entrepreneurs and the incredible impact they have had in the North Philly community and across the entire city.
This week, Uber provided its millionth uberX ride in Philadelphia, a milestone achieved in less than six months since launching our low-cost, ridesharing option. Since we first launched UberBLACK in Philly in May 2012, we’ve provided over ten thousand driver-partners with an unprecedented way to make a living or earn supplemental income on their own schedule. And all the while, we’ve connected over 400,000 Philly residents and visitors with an increasingly affordable way to move around the city.

Get ready for something BIG! We’re expanding on uberX and bringing everyone along for the ride. Introducing uberXL.
With your help, we launched services like UberFAMILY and wheelchair accessible vehicles. With your kindness, we donated money to feed the hungry, reduce DUIs, and provide coats to low-income families. Finally, with your support, we brought transportation options to the Pennsylvania commonwealth with uberX.
Philadelphians need continued access to safe, affordable and reliable rides. uberX, Uber’s low-cost ridesharing option, fills that need and that’s why the City must give it a permanent home here in the City of Brotherly Love.
Uber is now even more reliable in Trenton! From the train station to the supermarket, Uber is joining the community to ensure safe rides for everyone.
