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.

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.

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