Uber is Ready to Move You for Movement!
Memorial Day Weekend in Detroit means one thing: Movement. We’re back as an official partner to Detroit’s biggest party, and we’ve got BIG plans to make sure you can get around Uber-style all weekend long.
You asked and we listened! We’re bringing back UberSTRETCH – the supersized Uber – built to accommodate your supersized weekend of partying.
How do I request an UberSTRETCH? Good question! UberSTRETCH will be a special option in the Uber app. Use the slider along the bottom of the app to scroll all the way to the right to view available vehicles in your area.
How many passengers can my supersized Uber accommodate? Each vehicle will have capacity for a minimum of 8 people, with most holding 10 or more. After you request your ride, you’ll be able to see how many passengers your UberSTRETCH holds next to the driver’s picture.
When can I request this awesome party on wheels? UberSTRETCH will be available Saturday 5/24 and Sunday 5/25 from 7:30 p.m. to 3:30 a.m. Keep in mind demand for an UberSTRETCH will be high and availability will be limited.
What kind of vehicle can I expect? UberSTRETCH will be loaded with stretch limos and party buses! Each vehicle will be stocked with Redbull and Uber Swag to help you start the party! (While supplies last.)

- Call or text your driver to provide exact pickup location
- Verify the identity of the driver (found next to his picture in the app) to ensure you are in the correct car
- Don’t forget to divide the bill with our Fare Split feature so that everyone can roll out like a rockstar DJ without a rockstar budget
