Secret Ubers hit the road in Durban!

Living in Durban just got better today, as secret Ubers started roaming across the streets of the city this morning.

Music legend DJ Tira was lucky enough to spot the first one as he was looking for a classy ride back from the airport. At the push of a button, a slick Mercedes came along to get DJ back home in style.

No doubt, life in Durban has its perks: the best waves in the country are a walk away, Florida Road bars are legendary, and The Sharks play just around the corner.

It is a city that is about movement and lifestyle. So when it comes to you getting about town, we’d love for you to give Uber a try. If you’re a new user, enter the promo code: “DurbanLaunch” within the app and enjoy R200 off your first ride.

We’re still in testing phase, so please be aware that availability might be limited as we start testing our services. But you can be sure that we’ll be adding more Ubers every day, tweaking and perfecting until we get things just right.

Uber Durban is hiring!

As we build our own team in Durban, we’re also looking to hire a rockstar Associate General Manager to lead & grow our business and a fiery Community Manager responsible for rocking marketing & social media.

If you or anyone you know is interested, send them our way!

As always, we appreciate your feedback! Give us a shout at or follow us @Uber_Durban for updates.

Stay tuned, this is just the beginning!
