SUVs = Glorious
Because it’s the season of giving, today we’re pleased to announce the official launch of SUV in Atlanta. Our gift to you. Uber riders now have the option of requesting an SUV and riding swanky in a Navigator, Escalade, or Suburban.
What does this mean for you? If your posse is larger than four people, everyone can ride together in one Uber. Each SUV can accomodate up to six passengers. But, living large has its costs. In ATL, we offer a base fare of $14 and charge either $4.25/mile (when traveling 11mph+) or $1.00/minute (when traveling under 11mph). For more information on this check out the Atlanta city page.
How do I request an SUV?
If you are using the app, you can change the car type at the top of the screen. You can also differentiate car type if you’re using m.uber.com to request. Our classic black car option will continue to be available.
Note: choosing “Black” and being picked up by an SUV will not charge you our SUV rates.
If you have any questions about this new feature, please drop me a line. SupportATL@Uber.com and @Uber_ATL are the best ways to get in touch.

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.
