Modesto, we’re moving in!

It’s modest in name, but the city of water, wealth, contentment and health has some shimmering accolades. Visionary directors, world-class athletes and a relatively obscure wine-making operation you might recognize all call Modesto home… and we’re taking residence there, too.

Starting today, safe, reliable and affordable Uber rides are available in Modesto. Coverage extends from Ripon to Turlock, so riders can move all over Stanislaus County with a tap of our smartphone app — and we’re 20 percent cheaper than a taxi. Download Uber and enter the promotion code below for $20 off your first ride.

Up to $20 off your first Uber ride! 

Use Uber to watch some hardball at John Thurman Field this summer, or if you’re getting especially wacky on a Wednesday night at McHenry Bowl. Whether you need to be dropped at the airport for a flight, or P.Wexford’s for a pint — Uber can get you there. And if you’re thirsty for a local brewery with an especially strong IPA, use our fare split feature with three friends and a trip down HWY 99 should cost about $10 a person.


  • Download Uber via the App store
  • Sign up and enter RideModesto in the promotions menu

  • When your driver arrives, tell them where you’re headed
  • Everything’s paid for through the app — no need for cash


If you enter RideModesto in the promotions menu, your first ride up to $20 is on us, but even after the promotion ends, we’ll still be the cheapest car ride in town.

Modesto is one of our first 100 cities globally, and we couldn’t be happier to be moving in. Our expectations are sky-high for the city that first made cruising cool, and we can’t wait to see you around town.
