Secret Ubers Arrive in Taipei!
We knew that Taipei would be on the short-list for Uber Asia. Hot food, hot nightlife, hot people, and now, hot transportation to match. From the real-deal night markets to Taipei 101, Uber is officially here to get you there in style.
Don’t just take it from us though. A few hours ago, as secret Ubers prowled the streets of Taipei, Alex, aka ‘Ai Li Ke Si’ — actor, TV host, Macho Taco investor — caught wind of Uber’s arrival and immediately downloaded the Uber app. With the push of a button, Taipei’s ultimate family-man hooked up a luxury ride to the airport for an off-site shoot. Safe travels, Alex — and of course, Uber will be here to get you home in style upon your return.
With Uber’s Rider Zero on his way, Lisa Wang — premiere TV host, actress, and all-around trendsetter — would be close behind. Lisa fired up her Uber app to catch a day of summer rays at the beach. Not a minute later, Jorge was curbside in a Mercedes S-Class. Looking forward to her pick-me-up (no pun intended) after a long day of filming, Lisa jumped into the Uber and whisked away to White Sand Beach for some much-deserved R&R.
In the coming few weeks, Uber Taipei will be in “stealth” mode. Availability may be limited during this period, as we tweak our service to perfection. Even so, you may get lucky and catch one nearby. Need incentive? Enter the promo code “UBERTAIPEI” to receive NT$500 off your first ride! The code is valid toward any ride in Taipei before July 14. Keep an eye out for what the Uber Taipei team has up its sleeves on Facebook and Instagram. Any thing we can do? Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last but not least, Uber Taiwan is hiring. We’re looking for a General Manager who has a crazy passion for Uber, an intimate knowledge of Taipei, and is a natural-born leader. Many Uber credits coming your way for a successful referral!
See you on the streets, and Uber on,

Today, I’m excited to announce that Arianna Huffington will join Uber’s board. For those of us who know Arianna, it’s clear she knows a thing or two about being an entrepreneur. As the founder and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post, she’s built one of the most successful, innovative media companies in the world… from scratch. […]
