Uber to the Hamptons and Down the Shore

Skip the traffic out east and kick off the long weekend in the skies. To celebrate Independence Day and the official launch of summer, we’re taking off again with UberCHOPPER — powered by BLADE!

Fly with UberCHOPPER to the Hamptons this Thursday, July 3, between 10 AM and 5 PM

If a helicopter isn’t your style, we’ve still got you covered — no matter your destination. This summer we’re hitting the beach in the Hamptons and down the shore in New Jersey with uberX, UberBLACK, and UberSUV.

Starting this week and for weekends throughout the summer, we’re officially expanding our reliable coverage from East Hampton out to Montauk, and Sandy Hook down to Cape May. Wherever you’re headed, we’ll be there to connect you with a safe and reliable ride.


When you request UberCHOPPER, a private driver will transport you and four friends to the helipad, where you’ll take off directly for East Hampton. Another driver will be awaiting your arrival to drop you off wherever your long weekend begins.


$2,500 5 $500 per person

Flat rate includes door-to-door SUV service. Per person rates apply only to rides where the Fare Split feature is used and all seats are filled. Uber and BLADE are not direct air carriers. All air services advertised will be arranged by BLADE.


Service will run from 10 AM to 5 PM EDT on July 3, 2014*

  • Select CHOPPER in the Uber app
  • Set your pickup location and request  — we’ll give you a call for final confirmation
  • An SUV will pick you up, along with up to 4 friends, and transport you to the helipad
  • Enjoy the ride to East Hampton OR Southampton
  • An SUV will be ready and waiting when you arrive to take you to your final destination

Demand will be high for UberCHOPPER, and supply will be tight. If at first you don’t see any available, keep trying!
*Weather will keep the choppers from flying. If there are thunderstorms, UberCHOPPER will not be available.


Whether you’re going from midtown to Montauk, or the beach to the bar, there’s no better way to travel than by Uber. With flat rates between NYC and the Hamptons, and reliable coverage between East Hampton out to Montauk, we’ve got you covered at every step of your journey.

Fare split with friends to share the cost of an Uber to and from the Hamptons.

uberX $300 4 $75 per person
UberBLACK $400 4 $100 per person
UberSUV $500 6 $83 per person

Per person rates apply only to rides where the Fare Split feature is used and all seats are filled. Flat rates apply to direct trips between specified locations. Additional stops may result in a higher fare. Applicable tolls and surcharges may be added to your fare. Surge pricing applies to flat rates.


uberX will be the primary service available in the Jersey Shore. This means that using Uber on the shore won’t break the bank!
