Luton, your Uber is arriving

Luton is the home of hat making, low-fare air travel and its very own Carnival. As of today, we’re very proud to be the latest kids on the block calling it home.

From 4pm today, Lutonians will be able to request a car at the touch of a button.

So, whether you’re splashing cash at The Mall, jetting off to sunnier climes, or catching the Hatters at Kenilworth Road, you’ll never be more than a tap away from a reliable ride!

We’re working hard to get more cars on the road in Luton as the weeks progress, so if you can’t get a car first time round, keep trying! Got feedback? Send it our way on or by tweeting @UberUK.
