Today is the day we celebrate you with a special #UberEverywhere post! #UberEverywhere is our global blog series recounting all the city launches and milestones in Uber’s short, but action-packed history. Today you can open the app and get a reliable ride in any of Uber’s 60 cities, though no matter where we travel, we’ll always be repping B’more.
A Walk Down Memory Lane
It was hardly a week after our city’s soft launch on January 22nd, 2013, when the original Uber city challenged us in our favorite forum– the football stadium. At that time we were Uber’s 24th and youngest city! Our boys came out on top versus San Francisco to claim the 2013 Super Bowl Championship. And the good times have continued to roll since then. We’ve partied with you at Preakness, brought you Boats on Demand, and even delivered ice cream to you on a hot summer day.

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–
