Presidents Day the Uber NYC way

Being the President comes with some nice perks, including a motorcade of up to 30 black cars to get you around town. This Presidents Day, we’ve decided that such special treatment shouldn’t be reserved for presidents and diplomats alone. In fact, our Uber riders are just as important and we thought we’d treat you with the distinction that you deserve.

So here’s the deal: random New York City (and DC, Phoenix, BostonLA, Chicago, Seattle) riders who request an Uber on Monday will be greeted with a full Ubercade to get them to their destination. You got that right – it’s a motorcade of Ubers. A few of the best drivers on our system have been training with the Secret Service over the course of the last week* and they’re ready to put their skills to work for you in honor of Presidents Day.


Make a request for an Uber on Monday between 10 AM and 6 PM you just might be lucky enough to get the Ubercade treatment. Enjoy your Presidents Day!

And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS.
