Uber Sighting in Boston?!!!

Uber’s secret testing phase in Boston has begun. As always, some “forward thinking” rider uncovered one of our secret Ubers planted around town. Who is this rider zero?

It’s Calestous Juma, Professor at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. For a city full of scholars, innovators and data-addicted brainiacs, this feels like the perfect match. At 7am today he requested a car, dropped off his son Eric at school, picked up colleague Kevin Ryan, and the two then headed to the office. When asked about his ride he said, “I am looking forward to the maiden disruptive rides. My class later in the day will feature Elliot Entis, the guy who developed salmon that matures in half the time, uses 20% less feed and takes pressure off natural stocks. Another disruptor.” Professor Juma is definitely uber.

During our testing phase (read: data collection phase) we’ll have limited availability, so hang tight until our official launch (coming to a neighborhood near you). We’ve got some pretty swanky plans on the horizon. Stay tuned smarties…

 If David Ortiz is this excited, you probably should be too 🙂
