Secret Ubers Are Roaming Melbourne!
Matthew Bate Tackles Melbourne’s First Uber!
It’s a red hot day in our nation’s fashion capital, but it’s sport that’s really in dire need of Uber. AFL is Melbourne’s pastime, food and soul, and former Melbourne Demon Matthew Bate needs to get to training.
Footy players put in 100% on the field, so spending energy worrying about how to get there is something Matthew could do without. When he needed a ride, he simply opened his Uber app and pushed the button. 4 minutes later, Sajid rolled up in his slick black Chrysler 300C. Easy as!
With that, Secret Ubers are now testing in Melbourne! When you’re out on the town, coming home, or anywhere in between, Uber can take you there in convenience and style.
While we’re in “test mode”, you can request an Uber, but be aware that availability will be limited until our official launch. If you’re one of the lucky few that’s able to grab an Uber, make sure you shoot us heaps of feedback on your experience so that we can make our Melbourne launch classier than a Toorak dinner party. Just download the app for Android or iPhone, or go to m.uber.com, and if you can catch a Secret Uber, your driver will be on their way. If you’ve got any issues, suggestions, high fives or feedback, contact us at help.uber.com.

From Atlanta to Warsaw, people have truly embraced this easy and reliable way to discover the food they love at the push of a button.

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–
