Found: Chicago’s Secret Ubers
We know, sometimes you’re promised gigantic, game-changing developments that only result in a BIG FREAKING HOLE in the city. Well fear not Chicago, some things aren’t imaginary. “Secret Ubers” are on the road as @Uber_CHI begins testing…
AND, apparently it didn’t stay quiet long. Our “secret Ubers” had only been on the road for a couple hours and rider zero, Tom Conrad, CTO of Pandora & his team used Uber to cruise from W Lakeshore over to Groupon’s 600 West HQ! Go ahead and help us test, but be careful, this is for adventurous Uber riders only!
During our “secret Uber” test phase we’ll have limited supply and low availability but if you’re one of the lucky ones who gets a ride, please feel free to send us your thougths & feedback to supportChicago@uber.com or on Twitter @Uber_CHI.
