Uber Delivers Over 3,000 Free Tacos to USF

College students love Uber and free late-night food—who knew?

What a night! USF students may have a new favorite pastime: free tacos at the touch of a button.

Taco Bus and Uber teamed up to deliver over 3,000 free tacos to the USF area last night. Starting at 11pm, well over a thousand students began tapping “Request” in their Uber app. Amazingly, even with the ridiculous demand, each taco delivery took less than 4 minutes to go from request to arrival. That’s what tacos at the speed of Uber looks like.


Uber prides itself on being a safe and reliable form of transportation for college students in Tampa Bay. Last night, however, we were able to take things up a notch by bringing the USF community delicious food and late-night fun in true Uber fashion. It’s only a matter of time until our next big on-demand stunt, so stay tuned so you can get in on the Uber love.

Check out the pictures below and relive some of the greatness that was late-night tacos on-demand.
