Your UberDRIVE Mobile Game Is Arriving Now
Ever wondered what it’s like to be an Uber driver-partner? Do you currently drive with Uber and have been looking for a fun, creative way to hone your navigation skills? Today Uber is announcing the launch of UberDRIVE, a mobile game that puts you in the driver’s seat.
UberDRIVE showcases a day in the life of an Uber driver-partner. Players help riders get from A to B and earn high scores for identifying the safest and most efficient routes to their destinations.
Here’s how it works:
- Players interact with maps by tapping on intersections and identifying various landmarks around the city.
- Users can earn high scores by accepting trip requests in dispatch zones; players who take more efficient routes earn higher scores.
- Players who consistently earn high ratings will be able to unlock new cars and new areas of the city to explore.
UberDRIVE was designed as a fun and engaging resource for our driver-partners to hone their navigation skills if they choose to. It’s also a great way for prospective drivers to experience firsthand what it’s like to drive with Uber –– there are links to sign up and start the screening process from directly within the game.
Throughout the gameplay experience, we’ve integrated educational elements to help enhance city knowledge. There are fun facts for the most important landmarks in the city and a simple trivia mode where riders quiz players to point out certain destinations on the map.
UberDRIVE is launching nationwide, initially with content for San Francisco only. The game is available for download starting today in the USA Apple iTunes Store.
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button. Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
