Uber Visiting the Queen City: Free rides!

Rider Zero Theo and Driver Abraham

Hello Queen City! As Charlotte prepares for #DNC2012, we thought it time to test the waters and launch an ‘Uber Pop-up Shop’ for the week.

This week marks the 2012 Democratic National Convention Committee Media Walkthrough, so Uber will have vehicles in Charlotte from June 4th-June 8th. Pickup times will be shortest downtown and near the airport, but coverage will extend throughout Charlotte.

If we can woo you the way we think we can, we’ll be back in September for #DNC2012 doing whatever we can to smoothly chauffer the masses and help Charlotte show it’s a force to be reckoned with.

We’ve left out the best part: Your first Uber ride in Charlotte this week will be free! Simply request as normal and your first trip will be automatically billed as $0 (up to $40). For more info on Charlotte: http://www.uber.com/Charlotte.

Theo LeCompte, the COO of the DNCC, was our Rider Zero this morning. He had a seamless pickup at the airport, hopefully the start of great things as we move about Charlotte!
