DC, We’re Bringing a Little More Choice to Transportation
You asked for it, we’ve listened. In the spirit of freedom, we’re bringing a little more choice to transportation with SUV requests. Here’s how it will all work:
Our default option will get you a classy black car. It’s the same great service, prices, and experience as before. Although you may end up getting a larger vehicle, we can only guarantee cars in this category will seat 4 people. Note: if you choose Black and an SUV picks you up, pricing for the Black option will apply.
What so many of you have been waiting for: SUVs. With seating for up to 6 people, now you can roll deep without fear of someone having to Uber alone. Whether you’re spending a night out on U Street or in the Atlas District, or taking the whole family to the airport, we’ve got you covered with just the kind of car you need.
To choose what type of vehicle you want, you’ll need to use either our iPhone or Android apps. At the top of the map, select the type of vehicle you want. Set your pickup location, hit request, and boom, you’ll be able to watch an Uber coming towards you on your app. As usual, we’ll send you a text when your driver is on the way, and another when the driver has arrived.
We want to be really transparent about pricing for the new SUV option, so we’ve made it really easy to see the rates right from within the app: all you have to do is select the car types icon in the top right corner.
We’ve wanted this feature as long as you have, and we’re absolutely thrilled to bring it to you this summer.
– The Uber DC Team
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.
A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button. 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. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
