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.
UBER ARRIVES IN SANTA CRUZ
Going from tide pool-peering at Natural Bridges to the patio of a brewery on the East Side has never been easier. Locals, tourists and Banana Slugs that would rather not brave Hwy 17 can take Uber to the airport — fare splitting with a couple friends from Pacific Avenue to SJC is around $20 per person.

Whether you’re a freshman or a senior headed back to campus this fall, one thing is certain—you’ll need to eat. And there is nothing worse than being limited to questionable cafeteria food or taking a chance on expired leftovers in the back of the fridge. The best news? UberEATS is expanding to 30+ major college campuses by the end of the year, from Penn State to LSU to Boise State. Since we want you to focus on what you love about college and not worry about your next meal, we’re predicting the 5 times you’ll need to order UberEATS this semester.
We are excited to surpass the 100th city mark by welcoming two Brazilian cities, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, to the UberEATS family. From Atlanta to Warsaw, people have truly embraced this easy and reliable way to discover the food they love at the push of a button. Whether that’s an Indian inspired samosa, a good old-fashioned American burger or Vietnamese pho, people in 27 countries are using UberEATS to get a taste of the world’s flavors at the push of a button.
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.
