Monterey Bay and Santa Cruz Expansion
Some guys with serious golf game (and acting chops) are hitting the links at the 2014 Pebble Beach Pro-Am this week, and we’re joining them. The players will try to keep it on the fairway, but starting today, Uber will be driving all over the Monterey Bay Area and staying there for good after the tournament ends.
So whether you’re watching a round of golf, enjoying a dinner in Carmel-By-The-Sea or strolling along the avenue that was Steinbeck’s muse, safe, reliable uberX rides are now available with the tap of our smartphone app.

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.
