Hello Detroit: Secret Ubers Rolling in Motor City
“Detroit. Where just about everything cool originated.” Words by famed traveler Anthony Bourdain. Home to Motown, the Big Three, and the best coney dog you’ve ever had, we have a hard time disagreeing and that’s why we’re stoked to have landed in the Motor City. That’s right — secret Ubers have begun roaming the streets of Detroit and its close-by suburbs!
It’s no secret that transportation is at the heart of Detroit so it didn’t take long for Lions star Defensive Lineman Ndamukong Suh to get wind of our arrival.
Ndamukong grabbed the Detroit Rider Zero title on Friday when he requested an Uber from downtown Detroit. Within minutes, one of Uber’s finest drivers, Nick, swung by and whisked him away to his workout in a slick BLACK car.
With that, Uber Detroit is on! We’re still in test phase, where supply is limited and we’re still working to get things perfect, but we encourage you to try us out using the iPhone or Android app, or mobile site accessible at m.uber.com! We’d love your feedback too — give us a shout-out at @Uber_DET.
Kick up your heels, Detroiters. It’s on.
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.
