Uber Rolls Into Six More North Carolina Cities!
Today at noon, uberX is hitting the streets of six additional North Carolina cities: Durham, Chapel Hill, Greensboro, Winston-Salem, Fayetteville and Wilmington. Now 1 in 3 North Carolinians can request a safe, affordable and reliable ride at the touch of a button, and drivers can reap the economic opportunity that partnering with Uber provides. One more transportation option for North Carolina is good for riders, good for drivers and good for cities.
Shooting Guard Gerald Henderson knows North Carolina and he knows how to move quickly on the basketball court. He has no problem getting around quickly off the court, either. The former Blue Devil showed no hesitation as he fired up his Uber app and helped welcome uberX to six new cities in The Old North State.
Gerald now holds the title of Uber NC Rider Zero! (No word on if he dares Uber to Chapel Hill.)
Whether you want to catch some rays on the Carolina coast, grab a beer in The Bull City or dine out in downtown Winston, let Uber be your ride. With just the push of a button, Uber will connect you with the closest available driver in town, ready to pick you up in minutes. You’ll see a photo of your driver, the car they are driving, and even watch them on the app as they drive toward you. There’s never been a safer, more seamless and affordable way to move around your state.
If you don’t see uberX at first, don’t worry! Since Uber is still in testing phase, there may be times when availability is limited. Just refresh your Uber app again after a few minutes to request a ride and you’ll be on your way. Uber’s most reliable coverage in your area can be found here, but will be rapidly expanding around your city.

A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button. Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
