Welcome to Atlanta Where the Ubers Play….
The ATL is the birthplace of Coca-Cola, King of Pops delicious popsicles, and the world’s busiest airport. Now it’s welcoming Uber to the neighborhood. HOTlanta, famous for its heat, also loves its deep music roots and growing tech scene. So it was pretty easy choosing our first UBER ATL rider. Our Rider Zero, superstar music producer and rapper Jermaine Dupri, whipped out his iPhone at the crack of dawn (4:45AM to be exact), requesting a secret UBER car from his home to Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson Airport. His driver Terry Johnson rolled up in a slick, black Suburban as JD prepared to jet off to his next uber cool destination (see what we did there?).
Uber’s secret *testing* phase in the ATL hath begunneth! Forget that 105° heatwave, it’s only gonna get hotter now that Uber’s in town….that’s actually a good thing.
Although there are a few cars on the road, please keep in mind that UBER Atlanta is still in research mode. The experience you have during our *secret* Uber phase may not blow your mind the way it will once we officially launch (though it likely will). We’re still in the process of building our supply and hitting the perfect price point, so feedback is welcomed! Encouraged even. Please send your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org or share your experience with us on Twitter @Uber_ATL. Stay tuned for official launch updates.
Warning: Adventurous Riders Only.
Straight from the A,
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.
