Giants Fever is upon us. Men are growing black beards, people are boycotting Philly Cheese Steaks, and, according to SF Appeal, Taxis are being overwhelmed by the high demand of riders. They claim:
“In order to accommodate numerous Giants fans, drivers at a local cab company are asking San Francisco officials to authorize a temporary cabstand near AT&T Park…
Though there is a cab stand already in place at King and Second streets, Luxor Cab drivers don’t feel the stand will be sufficient to handle the crowds expected to attend games if the Giants continue to advance through the playoffs and make it to the World Series.”
While one option would be to wait in the massive line of drunk fans fighting at taxi stands, we would like to offer you an alternative: have an upgraded cab stand built into your mobile phone.
Sign up with an account for Uber. You’ll touch a button on your phone, pinpointing where you would like to picked up, and voila—a stylish black car (town car, escalade, benze, etc.) is headed specifically for you. Like iTunes, you’ll have your billing info stored,eliminating the need for cash. So you can splurge on hotdogs and Cody Ross bald caps without worrying about saving cash for your ride home.
Take control of your playoff celebrations by removing the limits of cab stand locations and lines. The “Cab stand” is now in your hand! We don’t care whether you’re in South Beach by the game, or watching from a bar in the Marina; Uber is the convenient, cashless, option to waiting in a cab line.
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
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.
