Uber. Motor City. It’s on.

For the past few weeks, secret Uber Black Cars have been cruising around Metro Detroit and
getting acquainted with the local communities of Motor City. We’ve been tweaking and testing
and now we are making it official – Uber Detroit has its wheels 100% spinning in the D.

Uber’s Head of Global Operations, Ryan Graves, spent the day speaking with various media outlets, like the “King of talk radio in Detroit”, Paul W.  and Huffington Post Detroit.  Things really started heating up at MoCAD (Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit) in Midtown, where we hosted our official launch happy hour with guests from various industries around Metro Detroit, with complimentary Uber rides to and from the party!  Local Uber partners showed off their finest vehicles inside the venue, representing all three of Detroit’s auto makers: Chrysler 300, Lincoln MKS, and of course the Cadillac Escalade.

As a tenant of the M@dison building, we’re immersed daily in the emphasis on leveraging innovation to rebuild the downtown area – a passion project that resonates with Uber! So let’s get to work together.
