Thanks so much, SXSW 2013!
With SXSW interactive over, some pats on the back are in order, for helping us with an amazing SX’ 2013.
If you hadn’t heard (or ignored your tweets for the weekend), Uber galloped into Austin offering Samsung-sponsored Pedicabs, FREE rides on UberX, and exotic rides on UberLUX! Looking back at the week, we’re super pumped to see all the #UberLove on thousands of free UberX rides and we’re excited to have worked with Samsung to show our Android users some love with the classic UberPedis. For those of you that go BIG in Texas, we even lassoed you exotic, luxury cars (including a Rolls Royce Ghost).
Our friend, Elon Musk even helped us roll out a small fleet of Teslas on the UberX system, giving people the opportunity to experience the sleek Model S, rocking a 17 inch touch screen and 3g internet. CEO Travis Kalanick even made a CNBC appearance!
All in all, we had a blast bringing Uber back to SXSW, and we hope you had an amazing time as well. Check out some pics of the Uber team in action on our SXSW Tumblr!
Adios, Austin. Stay weird.
