Uber has officially launched in Abu Dhabi!

Uber has found its way to an awesome island….Yes! It’s officially launched in Abu Dhabi!

The U.A.E. just celebrated its 42nd national day and Uber could not let this event go unnoticed. We have been received with a lot of love in Dubai and it is with great enthusiasm that we officially announce our launch in the capital, Abu Dhabi.

Guests showed up to an unforgettable night at Iris, Yas Island and we cannot be more thankful for the amazing turnout in this beautiful city. The great venue that overlooked the Persian Gulf was buzzing with people excited to try Uber out!

Abu Dhabi, the second city we launch in the Middle East, has established itself as the beacon of cultural heritage and visionary arts. With the construction of the Louvre Abu Dhabi and the Guggenheim, the city has grown to be not only a cosmopolitan metropolis, but also a city with a unique cultural imprint that is visited by many tourists yearly. It has become the home to many, and Uber has decided to make roaming around an even more pleasurable experience at your fingertip! So whether it’s a business meeting you’re running to, a party you have to attend or just a random tour in the city, Uber is now available to add a luxurious touch to transportation!

Here’s the deal: Use the promo code ‘UberAbuDhabi’ to get AED80 off your first ride and experience the ease of arriving in style! Not only that, but for every friend you refer Uber to, you can give and gain Uber credit! Once you download the app, you’ll receive a unique promo code for yourself to share with friends who you’d like to bring to the Uber circle. Once they download the app and use your promo code, they get AED40 off their first Uber ride. In return you get AED40 in Uber credits. It’s called the G40G40! How awesome is that? We call it #UberLove

And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS.
